Taperá House, the house with a garden on the roof
September 05, 2021 - Rio de Janeiro
The Taperá House is located in an isolated place surrounded by nature near Paraty, a town south of Rio de Janeiro in Brazil. The name derives from indigenous dwellings characterised by a simple and essential structure.
Although the house appears to be built on the same level, it is actually composed of three blocks on three different levels that follow the contours of the land. The first is the highest with the entrance. It is dedicated to the living area with a living room, a dining room, a kitchen, a breakfast room and a guest suite.
The second level is a sleeping area and houses three suites with French windows and openings to the outside.
The last level opens onto a huge outdoor area. It is designed as a sort of social terrace with a home-theatre and outdoor dining area.
