Residential Architecture: BR House by Marcio Kogan: “..the house is removed from the ground to approximate its surroundings, its exterior and ..the horizontal lines created are very visually distinct while the vertical ones have the intention of disappearing into the land..The pillars of Casa BR are not lean, but thick, like the trunks of the great trees in the rain forest. The wooden pillars end up dimming the vertical lines, causing it to appear as if the house were hovering above the rain forest. The beams and flagstones are thick and distinct with the exposed raw concrete in the case of the BR House..In this aspect, architecture displays its presence, not trying to hide itself in the surroundings, but affirming itself as a human production and a place for internal protected activities, without any dissimulation..” Wonderful site and materiality, wood, stone, glass, concrete, views, nature, indoor/outdoor sensibility..
