Architect Lina Bo Bardi crafted her own interpretation of a gorgeous glass home in Brazil’s São Paulo. Nestled within the forest, Casa de Vidrio (Glass House) sits on the edge of a hillside where the front of the home rests on stilts while the rear meets the ground.
This 50’s built space holds all types of found treasures, artworks and simple sling style chairs. Mosaic tile floors and huge floor to ceiling paned windows allow the tree filtered light to steep in an create an old world type of charm. This year marked a recognition and exhibition of this beautiful space, and its historical beauty still rings true.
