The Baleia houses

Located in the northern coast of São Paulo between a large rainforest reserve that shelters the mountains of Serra do Mar is the beach of Baleia where Brazilian firm studio Arthur Casas have developed ‘the Baleia houses’. The four dwellings contain the same narrow plan which are positioned diagonally on a small plot of land, mimicking the topography of the site. By using the wall of the neighboring residence, intimate spaces are created for the adjacent structure providing view of the encompassing landscape while maintaining levels of privacy for the inhabitants.
