open beach house1

Minimal and natural with large openings, Marcio Kogan’s Rio de Janeiro home effortlessly transitions to its seaside setting. The contemporary design is diffused with extensive use of warm materials like stone and wood, which create intimate interior and exterior spaces. The bottom floor is split into two wings, the first hosting the kitchen and maid’s quarters. A bar, game room, dining and living room are located in the second ground floor wing. The home’s six bedrooms are located on the second story, each with it’s own hotel-like balcony. [via digsdigs]
