Ramp house

The aptly named Ramp House bears all of the trademarks of Marcio Kogan’s studio. The living room — invariably the focus of the Brazilian architect’s attention — is an elongated right-angled volume sheathed in raw concrete that opens into a sheltered 4m-wide verandah that, in turn, leads into a minimalist landscape. “The inspiration for this house,” says Renata Furlanetto of Studio MK27, “was the client’s art collection and a ramp. The house was built around them.” Its reification as a solid, three-dimensional house in a quiet leafy São Paulo neighbourhood is gratifyingly breathtaking.
