Halfway between São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, off the BR-101 highway, lies a corner of Brazil bounded by forested mountains that edge their way down to the sea. The Saco do Mamanguá, a tropical fjord, cuts between the mainland and the peninsula of Juatinga, where ridges approaching 1,600 feet frame a narrow bay; this pristine spot is where you can come to trade life in the urban jungle for waterskiing and dolphin-watching or hop onto a speedboat for the short ride to the beachfront home. With that kind of seclusion at the end of the line, small wonder the paparazzi-conscious producers of the Twilight movie Breaking Dawn chose the house as the setting for vampire Edward’s honeymoon with his human bride, Bella.
Instead of siting the house on the property’s highest point, the architect Bernardes suggested placing the nearly 11,000-square-foot building closer to the beach, nestled between two small hills. He knew cooling breezes would flow naturally through the pass and also clear through the house; this in turn led him to a dramatic layout in which a double-height living area, open to the elements through louvered windows and pivoting glass doors, would spill out onto a deep, shaded veranda extending the full length of the house.
This towering central room neatly divides the interior into three parts. To one side of the space, a kitchen, dining room, and service wing sit below a spacious master suite. On the other, two guest rooms and a family room are beneath the children’s bedrooms; a bridge spans the open living area to connect the family’s sleeping quarters. The combination of skylights overhead and palm and banana trees sprouting from planters set into the floor makes the interior feel like an extension of the outdoors. Text from architecturaldigest
