Studio R by Marcio Kogan

Residential Architecture: Studio R by Marcio Kogan: “..Facing a small urban square, the Loft Studio opens entirely to the outside. The inner space of this photography studio flows into the side gardens of the building and into the urban space, establishing a spatial continuity between the square and the building. The façade, an aluminum gate is recessed into the concrete binding, integrating the front patio with the square; further, two large swinging metal gates – each more than 11 meters wide – permit fluidity between the gardens and the open space of the studio..Opened, these swinging gates make all visual barriers between internal and external space disappear. Closed, they allow the light in the Photography Studio to be controlled artificially. In the opening of the ground floor, there is a box clad in formica-china, where we have the lavatory, dressing room and the technical area.  In this space, there is no interference of the structure, which is built into the side walls of the building. Behind the green box, the stairs – lighted by a skylight – leads to the first floor, where we find the offices and the library..A volume with metallic material organizes all the space on this floor, separating the rooms and corridors.  On this floor there is a kitchen, the lavatories and the stairs that lead to the top floor. The negative of this volume is the work rooms which can be opened or closed – depending on the desired privacy – through sliding panels which are built into the central box. In the main office a fixed mashrabiya panel filters the light, while simultaneously opening a beautiful view of the large trees in the square.  On the top floor, there is a social room positioned over the front garden. This space opens with folding wooden panels, painted red, onto a deck where you can once again see the tree tops: a pleasant space for meetings on sunny days..The material used internally displays an industrial aesthetic, appropriate for the intensive use of a photography Studio that needs to constantly transform itself, depending on the situation. The floor of the large opening is of white resin which also becomes the endless back and the wall.  On the other floors, the wooden floor warms the ambient..Externally, the metal doors join the exposed concrete and the different colored wooden panels..”  Extensive glazing, natural light, views, privacy; interesting form and details..

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.. (article contains a 16-image slideshow)..

* Residential Architecture: Ipês House by StudioMK27 – Marcio Kogan

Posted by the editors on Saturday, 7 July 2012

Residential Architecture: Ipês House by StudioMK27 – Marcio Kogan: “..Concrete is..a type of x-ray of the construction and of the passing of time, where the surface is impregnated not only with the smallest defects but also the knots of the wood. It is liquid stone, as has already been said. The experience of constructing in raw concrete during these last ten years has shown StudioMK27 the impracticality of making an absolutely perfect material. The House of Ipês incorporates this experience of design and construction in exposed concrete..In this house the material is used in a radical manner throughout the upper volume and, as such, the large concrete box appears to be floating atop a glass volume. In the living room, which continues to the veranda and the garden, the doors open entirely, diluting the division between interior and exterior. The main entrance is done through pivoting panels that also open entirely to the front garden. In the internal space, a long irregularly-shaped sofa wriggles around the room, constructing a space with no hierarchy among the different orientations..On the top floor, a TV room distributes the circulation to the bedrooms, which are lit by a wood block on the concrete wall of the facade. The wooden brises offer the interior great thermal comfort and makes it possible to totally control the lighting..The structure of the house incorporates large spans which accentuate the Idea of a floating Box, besides propitiating a totally free and continuous space. The use of raw concrete refers to modern buildings, aesthetically and functionally, as in a dialogue with this modern architecture. The House of Ipês, with its grand spans and brute material, transpires a sobriety and the concrete impregnated by the passage of time, exposes the existence of the life of the building..”  Another lovely home by Marcio Kogan.  Extensive glazing, natural light, privacy; refined wood and concrete interiors, impressive wine cellar, significant interior decoration, indoor/outdoor sensibility..
