Philosophy

Studio mk27 was founded at the beginning of the 1980Ês by Marcio Kogan, an architect graduated from Mackenzie University in 1976, and today is formed by 12 more architects, as well as collaborators located in various parts of the world. The architects of the studio develop the projects from start to finish, and co-sign their authorship. Recently, the office has won several international awards, such as: Record House, in 2004 and 2005, the D&AD "Yellow Pencil" in 2008 and 2009, the Dedalo Minosse in 2008 and the Barbara Cappochin of the Padova International Biennial in 2007, besides important Brazilian ones, such as 12 awards from the IAB and the most recent: Wallpaper Design Awards in 2010. The architectural projects of studiomk27 highly values formal simplicity, always taking great care in the details and finishing. Marcio Kogan and the team, great admirers of the Brazilian modernist generation, strive to undertake the difficult mission of giving continuity to this line of production.

A team carefully gathered by Marcio Kogan work closely to design the exhaustingly elaborated details and the execution drawings. From the simplest project to an extremely high-end mansion, everything is thought out on the drawing board. The studio is specialized in hautecouture residences and its architecture is seen through a wide-screen lens always seeking to create surprising spaces and emotions.
