Facing a small urban square, the Loft Studio opens entirely to the outside. The inner space of this photography studio flows into the side gardens of the building and into the urban space, establishing a spatial continuity between the square and the building.

13th Biennial of Architecture of Venice

PEEP_ film exercise #1_ La Biennale di Venezia from studio mk27 on Vimeo.

Studio MK27 was selected to represent Brazil in the 13th Biennial of Architecture of Venice, together with the installation “Riposatevi”, of 1964, by the architect and urban planner Lúcio Costa. The pavilion, under the curatorship of the professor and author Lauro Cavalcanti, reinforces the dialogue among the different generations existing in modern Brazilian architecture. In this way, the relation with Costa’s project and the architecture of the pavilion itself exposes a retaking of the vigorous architecture in Brazil, after the long period of the post-construction crisis of Brasilia.

The never-before-seen installation of “Peep”, is a movie-installation directed by Lea Van Steen and Marcio Kogan, with photography by Cleisson Vidal, which shows, with the use of 18 cameras, 5 minutes of life during one of the projects of the office, House V4, located in São Paulo.

The architecture is a simple pretext to show life in the Monte family. This fragmented movie will be shown through 18 peepholes placed in a wall built inside the Brazil Pavilion in the Giardini of Venice. The visitor can spy on 10 scenes from the front of the installation. Through small peepholes in the wall you’ll be able to see images of Mrs. Monte complaining insistently about the architect; about her anxious wait for the gym class with the charming personal trainer; and about sex with Mr. Monte, where she seems to be more concerned about her nails. All this while little Yuri plays with the employees of the house.

On the part behind the wall, 8 visors show side B of the house: an uninteresting machine room where the caretaker finds refuge and peace to pick his nose; the washing and drying machines work non-stop; and the housekeeper ironing some clothing with an incomprehensible design.

Toblerone House, São Paulo

Toblerone House – 12 Aug 2012
The basic concept of the Toblerone House can be described as a unique image: a free first floor with large sliding glass doors which support a wooden box delimited by concrete beams. The first floor houses the collective program, with living room, utilities and kitchen. On the second floor are the three bedrooms, the den and a home theater. The conceptual and programmatic simplicity of the house joins a structural simplicity: a 14-pillared grid, organized in two lines, support the construction.

V4 House – 12 Aug 2012
With each new project contemporary architecture is forced to optimize spaces and use the maximum of each square meter of the site. V4 House is a rare anti-example. Its occupation of the land is very far from the maximum coefficient. Laws allow for much larger constructions. The solution adopted, however, dialogues with the dimension of the site, formulating an adequate relation between the scale of the construction and the site.

Casa dos Ipês São Paulo
Ten years ago, when the design studio tried to do a project using exposed concrete, many builders said that this was practically impossible. Yeah, Right – Brazil that has a vast modern tradition in the use of raw concrete? In the 1990s the use of the material declined sharply. Usage was generally restricted to the few architects that used it experimentally and sporadically.

Gama Issa outland is the explosion of the traditional house. What the clients wanted was carefully studied and then spread in independent boxes: bedrooms, kitchen, dining room, living room, home theater, atelier, gym, guest rooms, parking place and workers house, all traditional functions

Bahia house
The Bahia House makes use of the old popular knowledge that has been reinvented and incorporated throughout the history of Brazilian architecture. The house was considered for where it is, for the climate of where it is, for Bahia. And, for this no “green” software was used, no equipment and no calculations were made.
