Walkway House: Spacious Modern House Integrates with Forest Around It

One room flows into the next in the open living space with a multi-level interior featuring kitchen, dining area and other social zones.

The house is just a 30 minute drive away from Belo Horizonte and despite sitting on an angled plot; you do not really feel the slope once you are inside the Walkway House.
