The Planar House, designed by Studio MK27 in the Brazilian municipality of Porto Feliz, consists of two vast concrete slabs separated by pillars.

The interior is encased by a sliding glass façade which opens onto a terrace, creating an open pavilion. The roof is clad in grass, blending into the surrounding lawn and the landscape beyond.

And there’s you there with a G&T.


Na irlanda é pior.

Translation: Ireland is worse.

I have lived in Dublin since 2014. In 2016 I suffered a stroke while working as a Software Engineer. Since then I’ve been recovering and making videos for YouTube.

Some Irish friends advised me to send you my video ‘It’s Worse In Ireland’ where I get to talk about some of the the things I (and many other Brazilians) believe are worse here when compared with Brazil (my native country).

It’s not a very serious video as I mainly make comedy videos.

The Ubatuba House, built on a steep hill overlooking the Brazilian coast – a 10m x 10m x 6m high concrete box with a bottom floor veranda, first floor kitchen and second floor living area with bedrooms and bathroom. Two smaller adjacent units accommodate a parking area, custodian house, mechanical space, and swimming pool.

Quite the bunker.

I was at the impeachment protest with my partner, who is from Sao Paulo, and talked to a few Brazilian people living in Ireland to get their take on what is going on. There were and are certainly differences in opinion and politics, but all of the people there agreed that the impeachment is illegal, corrupt and undemocratic. I took a couple of videos of people having their say, hopefully you can post as your readers might be interested.
