The high temperatures and tranquil character of Brazil’s southwestern countryside defined much of the design of MM House in Bragança Paulista, São Paulo. Ventilation and insulation were key for the habitability of the house and the solutions presented by Marcio Kogan and Maria Cristina Motta of São Paulo-based Studio MK27, managed to incorporate these elements into the site and the relaxed atmosphere of a holiday house.
The MM House is set on the intersection of two perpendicular axes on a single floor. Along one axis is the horizontal volume of the house, with it’s green roof that lifts the grass off the land and merges with the surrounding construction. Along the other axis, there is emptiness: a wooden deck and pool.
