Corten House

Corten-House1

Marcio Kogan designed this unique urban house with a facade made of Corten weathering steel located near the largest park in the city of Sao Paulo, Brazil.

The dialogue between the rusty texture on the outside and the stone, wood, white mortar and the glass build the space. The main entry door to the house is made of wood and, despite being of a color similar to metallic plates, the texture and the presence of the material itself, distinguishes the suspended steel box of the frontal facade. The back facade is composed of a glass curtain that confers transparency to the opaque steel box and a suspended volume which contains movable wooden brises.
