GR House by Bernardes Jacobsen


Brilliant Brazilian architects Bernardes and Jacobsen designed this beautiful Sao Paolo estate with a focus on the natural world around it.  Steel and wood merge with floor-to-ceiling glass to pull in the palm-lined foliage and breezy Brazilian sky.  The interior is open and expansive, with ceilings stretching high and contemporary furnishings throughout.  The pool and grotto in the back is what has us sold, as the hottest of days are instantly cooled with a quick exotic dip.  [more at archdaily, photos courtesy Leonardo Finotti]
