The Ipês house by StudioMK27 in São Paulo, is yet another example of outstanding Brazilian architecture. The architects wanted to experiment with the use of exposed concrete and to create a house in which the top floor appears to 'float' atop the first. The ground floor houses the living area which flows seamlessly out onto the veranda and garden due to door panels that are able to be opened completely. Similarly, pivoting panels act as doors for the main entrance, opening up the side area entirely as well. The top floor holds several bedrooms, bathrooms and a TV room.
