This Arch-Shaped Home Has A Modular Design So It Can Be Disassembled And Rebuilt In A New Location

Atelier Marko Brajovic has designed a modern house that’s located on the border of the Serra da Bocaina National Park, close to the city of Paraty in Brazil.

The home, named ‘ARCA’, was built from the top-down, with the roof set up first and then the rest of the house was built under it.  

This modern arched shell house design uses ultra-light Galvalume (carbon steel + aluminium + zinc) modules that were assembled on site in only one week, and can be easily disassembled and rebuilt at a new location, if required

After the shelter was built, the wooden deck was installed, extending the living space inside.

Inside the home, the main dining area, living room, and kitchen are all open plan.
