Villa Designed by Bernardes Arquitetura Features a Roof in the Shape of a Wing

Bernardes Arquitetura tops Rio de Janeiro villa

The company from Rio de Janeiro, Bernardes Arquitetura, has finished another project: a house with a roof that resembles a bird’s wing. The villa is located on a hilltop in Rio and is known as the Asa House due to its wing-shaped roof. This contrasts with the main volume of the house, which takes place in Brazilian woods.

The spacious property has a main building which stands on the top from where you can see rich vegetation. Most of the structure is located underground. The house, made of wood and granite, can be reached via the driveway. According to the architects, the stone used here was of local production. A wooden staircase leads to the main part of the residence. The entire façade consists of sliding glass panels, and there is a separate living and dining area with a view of the garden. The backyard includes native plants from the Atlantic forests.

Thanks to the thin granite slats that completely cover small windows you can feel privacy in the bedrooms. The kitchen, in turn, is separated from the guest rooms, and the home office is at the other end of the building. The owner’s apartment is located in the main part of the house and has private bathrooms and closets. There is also a private terrace with a unique view of the forest.
