Bahia House / Marcio Kogan

The Bahia House is an ecological house. This isn’t  in the technological sense of the word, and not in the contemporary sense of “sustainability.” It doesn’t have the latest state-of-the-art gadgets that make it possible to optimize electric expenditure. Instead, the floor plan and the use of natural materials come close to those of traditional architecture. The design makes stunning use of natural light and openness.

A landscape with lush trees complement this already dreamy landscape. The architects and designers utilize the direction of the rising and setting sun to produce a lighting effect which is nothing less than magical.
