Called the Laranjeiras Residence, this stunning house in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil features an open box design, meaning that it “was built around the natural surroundings; allowing the landscape to dictate its layout.” Click here for more pictures.

This private home is used by its owners as a seasonal vacation house. The concept of the Laranjeiras House was for it to be built with the idea of design freedom, large windows, wide architectural openings, high ceilings, with large rooms all give the feeling of freedom within the space.
