Many times we've seen concrete, wood, and glass combine into striking homes with incredible indoor-outdoor experiences. But it's not everyday the finished product is as dramatic as this new retreat in Itupeva, a city in the Brazilian state of São Paulo.
The over 10,000-square-foot spread, designed by Brazilian firm Gustavo Arbex Architects, comprises a rather private bedroom wing with five suites in a row and a dramatically exposed living and entertaining area defined by large spans and narrow beams.
It's this part of the house that opens up to a spacious veranda, which overlooks the pool and large triangular pool deck. The pool deck comes with its own smaller triangular soaking tub. Not too shabby!
