brazilian practice studio mk27 has just completed one of their latest residences, the ‘MM house’ in braganca paulista, a wooded municipality of sao paulo. the dwelling consists of two perpendicular rectangular footprints. on the east/west axis is a reinforced concrete shell resembling an extruded version ofthe iconographic house, complete with a green roof that roots it discretely into the green hilly landscape. this volume contains all the interior programorganized in a linear fashion with a sequence of spaces from the garage and entry to the master suite at the other extreme. a screen of retractable slender wooden slats wraps the entire envelope along the exterior glass wall to soften direct sunlight, with the ability to open entirely to the exterior. all the privatebedrooms are situated along the eastern elevation facing down the valley, with the housekeepers’ quarters and social spaces along the opposite side, separatedby a long linear hallway. at the point where this solid mass intersects with the perpendicular wooden deck, the program becomes neither indoor nor outdoor,with a barbeque, bar and lounge area under the pitched roof but entirely open to the elements. the public living room and tv room flanking this space containlarge glass doors that visually, if not spatially, connect the two. the timber terrace extends out towards the lower area of the site, ending in a swimming pool hoisted upon a concrete plinth that reflects the picturesque environment.

  • I really think that it was good to see some pictures of the bedroom zone, because I think that the hall way leading to the bedrooms is too long and narrow and may feel like being in a tunnel. Also I’m wondering why there are too many bedrooms.

  • I agree, it’s absolutely stunning. Would have loved to see pictures of the bedrooms. In my humble opinion, this is as close to a perfect house as one can get.
