Accoya was used for all the superior decking and facades throughout the ‘Jungle House’ on Guarujá Beach. Accoya wood was also used for some of the interior paneling and room furniture as well as for unique MUXARABI joineries. This is a special type of joinery used by architects to enhance the aestetic design of a project as the joinery acts as a light filter providing varying projections of light throughout the day.
The architect chose not to apply any colour, leaving Accoya in its natural grey state therefore complimenting the beautiful surroundings of the project. Accoya was also chosen due to its incredible durability to withstand Brazil’s intense heat and humidity.

2. Clearly sophisticated Does your balcony look out to a beautiful prospect? If you don’t want the railing to obstruct the perspective, glass should be your choice. The waist-high clear glass railing in this balcony maximises the views without compromising on safety. Eight to 12 millimetre thick tempered glass can be relied on for this purpose. Moreover, it provides a sleek upgrade to the modern deck-styled balcony. - dr_chinmoyeedeka
