architects marcio kogan and suzana glogowski and interior architect diana radomysler, all of studio mk27, have completed the ‘osler house’ at the tip of one of paranoa lake’s estuaries in brasilia as a poetic reinterpretation of local contemporary architecture. the form of the house stems from two rectangular volumes, each with their own unique character, stacked perpendicularly on each other. the lower mass, a solid concrete shell andshear walls wrapping around a slender wood-slat screen, represents solidity and privacy. the retractable timber partition is completely removable,connecting the bedrooms, bathrooms, utility functions and garage directly to the garden and swimming pool located on a parallel axis. an interiorstaircase at the overlapping space of the two structures provides the primary interior circulation, leading to the upper level which is a concrete framewith large glass walls.

 

this component is supported on one end from the lower construct and on the other end by a pair of metal columns, reaching to the extent of the plot line.the sliding glass walls offer views from the living room, kitchen and office out over the city and allow access to the rooftop solarium of the ground element.an exterior continuous staircase cantilevers on the shorter wall of the lower component to communicate with the garden and pool, half of which is shadedby the overhang of the upper public functions. the foyer of the house contains possibly the last piece made by renowned native artist athos bulcão adding a special touch of value to the house and lives of its residents.
