JH House by Bernardes & Jacobsen in Brazil

The trend of outdoor spaces with an indoor feeling is starting to be more pervasive in architecture. It creates an incredible ambiance and is quite easy from a construction point of view as it doesn't add much to construction cost. Notice the vertical and horizontal sectional beams - they have a function beyond aesthetics as they increase structural support tremendously and allow for interesting options with lighting. What's missing is the retractable roof option for rainy days but you'll have to wait for that in CR!
