Geometry Meets Nature in This Brazillian Residence

The intersection of structure and nature.

A zig-zagged house in Bragança Paulista, Brazil, CA Residence by Brazillian design firm Jacobsen Arquitetura was heavily influenced by the natural curvature of the site’s topography. The space is divided by usage type; social, intimate, and service, with each area becoming independent due to the structure’s non-orthogonal angles.
