A concrete jungel – Maracana House brings the outside inside
Terra e Tuma constructed this house for architect and studio director Danilo Terra and his family in Sao Paulo. It is a three level storey, where the lowest level is a storey below the street. In all privacy all of the living spaces is situated on the lowest floor in a big open plan that includes the kitchen, social area and a workspace. Large glass doors brings the outside in to the living room, and lets green plants grow up on the walls and emphasize the building even on the inside. The wooden doors, kitchen cabinets and furniture makes an excellent contrast to the concrete blocks that are exposed throughout the space. The artwork on the outside, in front of the entrance is by Alexandre Mancini, and are created especially for the house.
