Another gem by MK27, Sao Paolo

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

Piselli, the new garden restaurant in Sao Paulo
by Christel Caulet // Food
Piselli, the new garden restaurant in Sao Paulo. Here is the latest architectural creation by Parisian Eric Carlson and his office CARBONDALE in Paris & Sao Paulo : the high-end culinary establishment, Piselli. This new restaurant is situated in the heart of one of Sao Paulo’s most renowned interior public spaces, the central plaza within the Iguatemi Faria Lima building. The 3,000 square meter 4-story high Main Plaza was itself also recently transformed by CARBONDALE into a luxurious volume lined in travertine stone, naturally illuminated by a structurally avant-garde sculptural skylight, and punctuated by a lush pixelized stepping central garden.

New Spectacular Residence by the very talented Marcio Kogan, Sao Paolo

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

The Brazilian architecture firm of Felipe Hess has designed this bright and spacious apartment located in a 1960’s modernist building in São Paulo for its owner, a young actor who lives alone. With the brief calling for a spacious, open and clean-cut space, the designers decided to tear down almost every wall and unify all social areas. One of its unique features is a 10-meter-long table that runs along one side of the loft-like space, serving different purposes at different points (functioning as a cooking table and office desk with inlaid power plugs and dining table). The apartment’s private areas, comprising a master bedroom with bathroom and closet and a small toilet for visitors, are separated by a large white wall. Reflecting the owner’s occupation, a special area has been created opposite the kitchen for rehearsing plays, simply furnished with a few chairs and amply lit with natural light. via Yatzer

New Cultural Hub opens its doors in Sao Paolo REDBULLSTATION

A major new cultural venue opened in São Paulo in November 2013 in the form of Red Bull Station, in the heart of the city’s downtown in a stunningly repurposed, previously neglected 1920s building.

Two main differences mark Red Bull Station out from the rest of the city’s sterling array of cultural hubs: it was conceived as a space for the production of culture, in the form of music and art, rather than as a platform for ready-made exhibitions and shows; and it’s sponsored – or to be more exact, 100 per cent paid for – by the makers of a well-known energy drink. via TimeOut

Casa Cubo, Sao Paolo by Isay Weinfeld

The realization of Isay Weinfeld’s Casa Cubo is the mutual vision of the Brazilian architect and the home owners; two contemporary art collectors. Conceived from the belief that art should be shared, Casa Cubo is a lodging and support center to artists and the development of the arts, but with all necessary facilities to serve as a home.

Styling detail – inspiring staircase


In a home in São Paulo, architect Isay Weinfeld chose to envelop a staircase in the family room with a bleached hardwood. The rough timber adds character and warmth to the contemporary space.
