first_imgPhotographs:  Nelson KonText description provided by the architects. Corten House is an urban house located near the largest park in the city of São Paulo, Brazil. The site, long and narrow, contains the program of the house and, its residents, not only have a small external deck with a fireplace on the ground floor, but they also make use of the rooftop and, especially, the park itself for leisure.

The dialogue between the rusty texture on the outside and the stone, wood, white mortar and the glass build the space. The front door of the garage is made of vertical wooden strips and opens entirely onto the street. The main entry door to the house is also 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 façade. The back façade is composed of a glass curtain that confers transparency to the opaque steel box and a suspended volume which contains movable wooden brises. The interior walls of the lot are made of Stone.

Save this picture!© Nelson KonThe mezzanine, on the wooden volume, is a singular area for the home-theater. From here there is another staircase leading up to the third floor, to the private program of the house, the three bedrooms. The master bedroom, in the back, has a wooden panel of brises to filter the light and can remain completely open.

This space functions as a solar with a heated pool and a view of the city of São Paulo.Save this picture!© Nelson KonProject gallerySee allShow lessDenver Art Museum / Studio LibeskindSelected ProjectsSir Geoffrey Jellicoe Award 2011 Call for NominationsArticles Share Projects Houses Year:  CopyHouses•Sao Paulo, Brazil Save this picture!© Nelson Kon+ 28 Share CopyAbout this officeMarcio KoganOfficeFollowProductsSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSao PauloHousesBrazilPublished on October 05, 2010Cite: “Corten House / Marcio Kogan” 05 Oct 2010.
