Free and hedonistic enjoyment in nature. It’s the first thought that comes to your mind when you look at this unconventional “Two Beams House” in Brazil. Unlike the standard buildings, this house designed by architect Yuri Vital is open, free, without walls, as part of nature.
Vital wanted to create something innovative, a home with a brand new, so far unprecedented concept. Instead of being closed, the house breathes freely, and it consists of two pavilions linked together. The house is supported by two beams and four poles. Instead of walls it is constructed with glass, in order to offer an unobstructed view of the landscape from every angle. Since it is located in Brazil it is designed to have natural ventilation and light.
The building is a combination of two pavilions with an open area that serves as an open courtyard. The two pavilions are connected with stairs, and are made of glass with minimal walls in order to offer an unobstructed view of the ocean and nature. The courtyard between the pavilions is designed as a space for leisure, recreation and entertainment.
The lower level is housing the living room and kitchen, while the upper is reserved for the bedroom.
