Sp Penthouse in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Project by Studio MK27

The celebrated Brazilian Studio MK27, founded in the early 80′s by architect Marcio Kogan -renowned as one of the most worldwide influential persons on the scene of design and architecture- designed the architectural interiors of this stunning penthouse in Sao Paulo. The goal was to create fluid open spaces with a cozy and solemn atmosphere, where the fixed custom contemporary furniture should be in perfect harmony with the design classics from the Brazialian, Scandinavian and Italian signs, such as Hans Wegner, Franco Albini and Gio Ponti.


The house of artist Tomie Ohtake, in Sao Paulo.

The Japanese-Brazilian artist Tomie Ohtake arrived in Brazil in 1936 and soon felt in love with its tropical energy. In 1960, her son, the architect Ruy Ohtake, designed for her a brutalist building of 750 m², that was a manifesto to her poetic vision of life: a real monochrome concrete sculpture that enhanced hundreds of multicolored  art works and icon design furniture.
