Residential Architecture: Chimney House by Marcio Kogan: “..A wooden patio with trees, formed by the volumetry of the house and a concrete wall, articulates the entire program of the Chimney House. The living room is enclosed in the boxed ground floor of this volume and wide windows open it to the external space. The inner dimensions of the living room..create a sensation of coziness, accentuated by the textured of the concrete ceiling made with narrow wooden formwork. In this way, a desired horizontal proportion for this project is created..”  Interior courtyard, indoor/outdoor sensibility, rhythmic texture, extensive glazing, lovely interiors with quite nice furniture..

Posted by the editors on Sunday, 29 April 2012

Residential Architecture: Paraty House by Marcio Kogan: “..Two boxes of reinforced concrete, rest fixed connected on the mountainside of one of these islands; two modern prisms between the large colossal stones of the Brazilian coast. The volumes project outward from the mountain, almost abreast of the beach, in a 8-meters cantilever. The house, of structural ingenuity, finds balance in the topography of the land, constituting an extensive open doorway and living space in the practically-untouched nature..an important furniture collection of the XX century designed, among others, by George Nakashima, Luis Barragan, Lina Bo Bardi, Sérgio Rodrigues, Joaquim Tenreiro and José Zanine Caldas..”  Cantilever, extensive glazing, views of the ocean, surrounded by nature..magnificent..stunning furniture, amazing interior..
