In Porto Feliz, a Municipality in the state of Sao Paolo, the brilliant Brazilian Studio MK27 has completed a dwelling that the practice describes a “radical exercice in horizontality”.
The residence is inserted at the plot’s highest point and topped with a green roof that mimics the surrounding lawn.
I may be repeating myself but Studio MK27 and more specifically Marcio Kogan, is by far my favourite architect today. We see with each project he and his team produce, elegance, originality and wonderful examples of interaction between indoors and outdoors, between nature and man-made constructions.
With this particular house, living rooms can be completely opened or closed by sliding glass doors located at each end of the property. With the doors opened, the house is transformed into a generously proportioned terrace surrounded by nature.
The architects carefully integrated solar panels and skylights withing the canopy on the green roof mimicking the surrounding lawn.

In the Brazilian city of São Paulo, Studio MK27 has completed the design of ‘Ramp House’, a residential dwelling connected — as the name suggests — by a 25 meter incline. A sloping walkway links the living room at ground level with the bedrooms on the story above. This gradient also forms what the design team refers to as an ‘architectural promenade’ and allows the adjacent space to be observed from a number of different perspectives. SOURCE : Designboom

Brazilian Marcio Kogan of Studio MK27 presents one of his newest residences located in the countryside on the outskirts of Sao Paulo, the ‘redux house’. Two thin parallel concrete planes stretch over a gently curving topography acting as floor and roof, floating slightly above the terrain. The large rectangular footprint provides a 360-degree experience within and around the home, with a large concrete mass perpendicularly projecting out into the site containing the pool. Wthin the framing elements indoor and outdoor space are separated only by a transparent operable glass membrane that slides to connect the two states. via designboom
