Guaruja House by Brazil’s Bernardes Jacobsen architecture firm is your modern beachfront paradise. Designed to be a pavilion supported by only five pillars, with en-suites bedrooms, living room, sitting room, dining room, balconies and a pool facing the beautiful sight of Guaruja beach. Atop the deck, an outdoor entertaining area offers fabulous views in all directions and surrounded by treetops reaching up from below. Interiors have a unique downward design. The home, wood and glass blend beautifully with the surroundings. The trees where planted in this level, giving a sensation of the house being in the canopy of the trees.
