"Honey,what would you like me to give you for Christmas?"

Photobucket

"Well.. darling, I was just thinking about it. Maybe a beach house in Baia di Paraty would be a nice idea?" The next day the husband called an architect to meet him on his private yacht in a bay near Rio de Janeiro. He gave him a white sheet of paper, a pen and said: "A house with a breathtaking view on the ocean". No demands nor suggestions. The architect's name is Marcio Kogan so I'm not suprised the husband trusted him blindly because THIS is the result. Lucky wife she is.

I think Marcio Kogan is another living example of how brilliant a human mind can be. Here we are having to do with nothing more than just two simple geometrical forms, parallelepipeds cut out of the rock and inserted into the exotic exuberance of nature. When they say "less is more".

I'm almost drooling here, and this isn't even food! The light inside the house looks so beautiful, too.

Well that's a good pint, Eva. Another example of how much a good lightening can actually do! Not that the house itself needs any "magic" of great illumination.. :)
