Casa Cubo by Studio MK27 - Marcio Kogan

Residential Architecture:  Casa Cubo by Studio MK27 – Marcio Kogan: “..Two chunky concrete storeys are perched above a living room without walls at this house in São Paulo, Brazil by Brazilian architects Studio MK27..Led by architect Marcio KoganStudio MK27 imagined the house as a solid object punctured by large voids. “[It is] a monolithic volume that, in its empty interior, contains other volumes,” explains the team..Perforated metal screens slide back and forth around the perimeter of the ground floor living room, allowing the space to either reveal or conceal itself from the surrounding garden and swimming pool..”The common area is therefore an open space, like a rip in a concrete box, totally integrated with the garden,” say the architects..On the upper floors, more metals screens can be pulled across the windows to provide privacy for the bedrooms, television room and office located behind the concrete facade..Suspended treads rise up though a narrow stairwell to connect each of the floors and eventually lead up to a terrace on the roof..”  Interesting form, conception, materiality, interior volumes and interior decoration and design; indoor / outdoor sensibility..
