Located in São Paulo, Brazil, Studio MK27 recently completed work on the outstanding B+B house. The architecture of B+B House sought to create an intimate home for the residents as well as for the reception of friends and social gatherings. A reference to Brazilian modernism lies in the wall of hollowed-out elements, renowned from the '30s, appropriate for the tropical climate since it allows for shading without blocking of the fresh breeze. The social area of the home creates a sensation of coziness and comfort, in an open space, without any structural interference. Different than the usual solution, the rooms are on the first floor and can be also accessed internally via a staircase connected to the living room on the top floor. The wooden elements on this floor’s facade allow for the internal control of the sunlight and thus provides great thermal performance. The use of raw materials such as exposed concrete and wood give a lively aspect to the residence, constantly changing over time.
