Studio MK27 has donated this unique, signed architectural drawing of its acclaimed Bahia House in Salvador, Brazil, a residence designed specifically for the hot climate. The project uses traditional Brazilian building techniques and materials, including clay for the roof and wood for the ceiling. The home’s exterior walls consist of sliding, latticed wooden panels, and it is organized around a central patio—notably designed to respect pre-existing mango trees in the middle and front of the plot—to maximize natural ventilation and keep the interior cool in hot weather. According to MK27: “Context dictated the project premises.”

 

Studio MK27 was founded in São Paulo in the late 1970s by architect Marcio Kogan; today, it comprises 30 architects and various collaborators worldwide. The architects of the team, great admirers of the Brazilian modernism generation, seek to fulfill the task of rethinking and giving continuity to this iconic architectural movement.

 

Kogan is an honorary member of the American Institute of Architecture and Professor at Escola da Cidade in São Paulo and Politecnico di Milano. He leads a team of architects who, for the most part, have been working with him for over a decade. Since 2001, Studio MK27 has earned more than 250 national and international honors from the likes of: São Paulo Architectural Biennial, WAF, Architectural Review, Dedado Minosse, Record House, D&AD, Spark, Barbara Cappochin, Iconic, AZ, Wallpaper Design Award, and Prix Versailles.
