Chimneys on the top of the roofthis seems to be the local brand in Sao Paulo, popularly known as Sampa, and the largest city in Brazil. Architect Marcio Kogan from Studio MK27 took this theme and built a house inspired by that. As we can see from the images below, the chimneys on the rooftop are of varied shapes, inspired in the chimneys on the rows of houses in the city of Sao Paulo.
The house of 400 sqm was completed in 2009 and had two special interior designers: Diana Radomysler, Carolina Castroviejo. What I liked most is the wooden patio with trees formed by the volumetry of the house and a concrete wall. The living room is enclosed in the boxed ground floor of this volume and wide windows open it to the external space. The inner dimensions of the living room 6.5m by 10.3m, and the low ceiling of 2.40m, create a sensation of coziness, accentuated by the textured of the concrete ceiling made with narrow wooden formwork. In this way, a desired horizontal proportion for this project is created.
