Where form meets function

The Brazilian firm behind Casa Itu, Studio Arthur Casas, delivers yet another stunning residence with Casa AL. Invited to help choose the location by the client, the house sits on a hillside in Rio de Janeiro, overlooking the ocean and with views of the city’s famed nearby mountains. Having chosen the site together, the firm began work on the three-storey house that is built into the slope of the hill, with the middle level acting as the central ground floor. This floor houses the main living areas, including a cinema space, and opens up to an expansive terrace and swimming pool, with glass walls that slide open fully to merge indoor and outdoor space.
