Concrete Arches Create Dramatic Interior Spaces Throughout This Home

Rodrigo Ferreira, a young architect from central Brazil, has designed ‘Casa Joy’, a modern concrete, glass, and wood home filled with arches.

The house, which is located on the outskirts of Goiânia, was built for an unconventional and active lady in her mid-70s and her family, and serves as a retreat and a gathering point for all of them.

At the front of the house, there’s a winding concrete path that’s lit up at night, guiding people from the road up to the front door.
