brazilian practice studio mk27 (marcio kogan, suzana glogowski) has completed ‘studio sc’,
a free-standing food photography studio in são paulo, brazil. longitudinally set back to
accommodate a generous outdoor garden, the design utilizes a simple and linear layout that features
an elevated concrete catwalk overhead.

fronted with large sliding metal doors, the facade can be set in a variety of configurations
that will facilitate different levels of connection between the garden and the interior.
the central studio space is defined by its open nature, neutral enough for maximum flexibility.
a longitudinal working area defined by a single-stretch desk along the back wall maintains
the linear design while also creating a space that facilitates interaction and communication.

slicing across the double-height studio space is a suspended concrete walkway which connects
two pavilion-like structures on either ends of the layout. hosting specific programs necessary
for the food photography studio, the wooden boxes continue the customizable language of
the facade by enabling total privacy/transparency through collapsible shutters. accommodated
programs include a reception area, rooms for image treatment, and a technical kitchen for
preparing food for shoots. a roof top deck complete with a large secondary kitchen provides
an airy space for a variety of events.
