studio mk27: V4 house

brazilian firm studio mk27 has finished the ‘V4 house’ in sao paulo, completely submerged within its context. the one-storey sub-grade dwelling stretches to the extremities of the site benefiting from the interior program as much as the exterior garden. along one axis, a wooden box enveloped in perforated timber panels contains the private bedrooms shaded from direct light and therefore more easily acclimated. a vast exposed concrete roof mass with integrated beams extends perpendicularly disappearing into the natural stone retaining wall defining the property line, doubling as an exterior deck on grade. the public living spaces are delineated by four slender columns, wrapped in retractable glass doors to immerse the inhabitant in the outdoor environment.   

 

‘V4 house’ has been shortlisted in the ‘housing’ category of the 2012 world architecture festival. see the complete list of this year’s nominated projects here.

  • What a lovely bit of kismet…that Villa SK and V4 House, are offered here, almost simultaneously. There are so many lessons here regarding ideas, and their critical conditions required, in order to really succeed.
    By contrasting the two projects’ approaches to structure, site, and materiality…it becomes clear how one project seems like a push and ultimately fails, while the other flows organically as if a seed, planted by its context.
    Thanks so much, danny and studio mk27
