Surrounded by a creative use of greenery, the owners of Maracanã House have their lifestyle set as comfortable, contemporary and freeing. São Paulo-based architectural firm Terra e Tuma Arquitetos Associados created a luxurious collection of public and private spaces that erase the boundaries between indoors and outdoors. Its location in São Paulo, Brazil, creates a blank canvas for the erection of a contemporary home among traditional houses of the neighborhood.

Opaque surfaces meet clear glass ones in a vibrant interior design.  A mural adorns the entrance and gives a glimpse into the uniqueness of the modern interiors. The contemporary Brazilian property displays a powerful connection between man-made and natural, creating a functional space where the inhabitants can enjoy the serenity this home oozes in the social spaces on the first floor or in the private spaces above. Greenery is always part of the picture, creating a sense of freedom within a protective space.
