The CAA Residence is an attachment to a summer home in Angra dos Reis, a municipality of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Completed by Jacobsen Arquitetura, the addition serves as a guest wing, making room for a party. The expansion houses two new suites and an open plan living room and kitchen. Each space is polished and modern in look with sliding glass doors and retractable slatted screens. Moreover, the extended area now includes a pool, a pergola, and stone pathways to welcome everyone outdoors.
