A Warm Wood Interior Welcomes Guests To This A-Frame Cabin

Architecture firm Atelier Marko Brajovic has recently completed an A-Frame home in the Brazilian forest.

The house was built between the trees, and occupies a 16ft x 19ft (5m x 6m) area, allowing the home to avoiding any interference in the native vegetation.

The exterior of the house is covered by a galvalume skin with thermoacoustic insulation, while the main framing of the home is wood.

This level also includes the bathroom, which has a similar design to the kitchen on the lower floor. In addition to the vanity area, there’s a walk-in shower and a toilet behind a door.

The home also includes two side terraces to help with cross ventilation and a terrace on the top floor that creates a multi-functional space for physical activities, study, and meditation.
