From the outside, The Leaf House looks like something out of Thunderbirds.

Six huge leaf-shaped sections make up this amazing Brazilian house with its own private beach, not far from Rio’s Prainha Beach.

It’s also super eco-friendly with big open wall-less rooms for air ventilation, while the roof harvests rainwater to use inside the house.
