Walls Of Windows Allow This Hillside Home To Take Advantage Of The Forest Views

Schuchovski Arquitetura has recently completed a modern home in Itajaí, Brazil, that’s surrounded by a forested hill and includes a sculptural spiral staircase, as well as a cantilevered swimming pool.

Inside there’s a small entryway before it opens up to the dining room. Sculptural metallic pendant lights hang above the rounded dining table, while spiral stairs and a green wall separate the dining room from the living room.

On the opposite side of the dining room, there’s a bar with a long narrow island and a secondary living room with a bright pink sofa and a large artistic rug. The kitchen is tucked out of sight behind the bar.

The kitchen and secondary living room open to a deck and swimming. The swimming pool has a triangular shape, and it’s easy to see when looking up at it from below, how cantilevered it is.

There’s also a secondary staircase that also connects the floors of the home, however, this one has skylights to help keep the space bright.
