For the little brick house, StudioMK27 received an unusual request: the clients wanted a house with opaque corners, without glass panels meeting at those corners. The result would be, first of all, a construction that is more enclosed than most of the office’s projects which seek the greatest transparency possible, on all the facades.

The smallest dimension of the lot is the front. It was decided to place a single volume perpendicular to the street, turned entirely to the side. The front façade is blind, constituting the “house without glass corners” desired by the client. On the ground floor, looking out to the pool and to a grand terrace through a glass curtain of sliding doors, there is the living room, dining room and an office. On the upper floor, also facing an open terrace, are the bedrooms. All of the intimate area of the house is protected by brises panels that can remain completely open and offer a magical aspect to the folding wooden wall.

The house is named after the bricks that were taken from demolitions. The aged recycled blocks give a more rustic and more robust appearance than new products and the history is impregnated in the material even before the house is used. Besides the concerns relative to environmental comfort, ever-present in the history of modern Brazilian architecture, such as the use of terraces to shade glass facades and sun protection with brises, the little brick house incorporates more technological precepts, such as solar energy panels arranged on the roof.

stop complaining about brazilian poverty and all the rich motherf***ers hiring architects to build their houses. nowadays brazil is an economic power heading to be the fifth economy in the world, so there's lots of people with money there.
if you want to make a difference, grab a machine gun and start shooting everyone around you because we're already 7 billion and counting...

jw · August 30, 2010

so beautifully detailed. the textures of the material bring in a perfect balance to the more rigid floor plan. i would love to see some shots of the kitchen and bedrooms!!

So it's "hip" to be hatin' on Kogan now? Hehe...

Building this house probably gave work and pay for a lot of people including some very good craftsmen.

kristina · August 30, 2010 08:09 PM

word. such fine, fine craft.

Leonardo Ximenes · August 30, 2010 07:54 PM

And they were all really grateful to have a $3/h temporary job.
By the way the client probably brags about the low wage he paid the laborers, the same way he brags about the fortune he paid for the paintings that will cover those walls.
I think Kogan is extremely talented...I just lament such a talent is exclusive to rich politicians and entrepreneurs in a country that needs it applied to the common good.

I DONT THINK THIS IS REALLY BRAZILIAN ARCHITECTURE

Thomas · August 30, 2010 07:03 PM

Ofcourse it isnt. It's not built in Brazil or designed by a brazilian architect. It's polish architecure... probably! Who do they think they're fooling?!

Every time I see this kind of comments on high bidget Brazilian architecture i always read somethig like: "Scandalous! How dare you? These people should go back to the favela wich is their rightful place!"

frank · August 30, 2010

..."For the little brick house, StudioMK27"... LITTLE???? This kind of affirmation in a country where 40% of population lives under the poverty line makes me sick. I am not against this kind of architecture (high budget arch), but do not try to tell me this is a small housing program. MK and their rich clients = good architecture with really good budgets.

Tom · August 31, 2010 10:42 PM

I think that there was a problem in the translation of the text from portuguese. The right would be 'little-bricks' house or something like that.

Since when is 780 square meters little?!

This guy gets a lot of mileage out of compressed horizontal planes, raw materials and brise soleil screens. I guess he's found his style... (or his clients found it for him)
