Located on a plot overlooking the sea in the middle of the Atlantic Forest, LAB House is planned to hang above the vegetation. In order to realize this idea in the building, which offers a wide perspective of the ocean, it is fixed to the concrete beams on the façade; 4 meters high “L” shaped wood-covered metal wings are used. The rooms in the building are arranged on the ground floor with large windows and balconies overlooking the forest. A guest room and an office are located on the lower level, while the other floor is reserved for welfare and relaxation environments such as a spa, sauna and gym. On the middle floor, the social area placed at the height of the treetops, the living area is integrated with the dining area and the terrace with the swimming pool reinforces the feeling of being in touch with nature. On the upper floor, there is a balcony designed to provide a 180-degree sea view and a breeze that integrates the freshness of the vegetation. Facades covered with natural stone and wood create materiality that is in harmony with the landscape of the region while creating a contrast with the surrounding green vegetation. Most of the furniture such as desk and coffee table in the interior was specially designed by architects.
