Estevao Silva da Conceicao worked for over 20 years to build a truly unique home for his family.
At just over 800 square feet, it is anything but a mansion. The diminuative wonder is located in the favela of Paraisopolis near Sao Paulo, with a rooftop view of the surrounding favela.
The Casa de Pedra, or "House of Stone," is covered in Gaudi-esque - but not Gaudi-inspired - tile mosaic surfaces. Estavao, however, apparently knew nothing of the famous Spanish architect util his home was nearly complete.
