Studio MK27 complete new São Paulo residence 

The C16 H14 O3 house is a collection of transparencies and light filters. The volumetric composition and the materials of the house produce lighting effects. Throughout the day, the house, with the incidence of light on the materials, acquires new colors and new aspects.

On the front façade, a polycarbonate volume sustained by a light molding seems to be set into the raw-concrete volume. The plastic skin allows the light to enter, acting as a light filter. At night, the transparent volume becomes a lantern.

The living room can be totally opened by sliding glass doors, dissolving the limit between the living room and the garden. On the second floor, the concrete volume is disrupted by the receding skin of wooden brises that protects the rooms from direct sunlight and proportions greater internal thermal comfort. The roof recalls a beach where, at the end of the afternoon, you have a view of the sunset, a rare sight in the city of São Paulo.
