Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel’s ‘treasure garden’ references 1930s italian design in Taiwan

Consisting of a series of thin and light blades, it rises up to the sky, consolidating residential areas, public spaces, terraces, and landscape in its design. Public and private spaces are defined by functional, and at the same time, poetic landscape design based on the historical Hortus Conclusus. Modular diamond-shaped geometry dominates both the facade and the interior of public areas.

The slender and geometrically intricate residential tower building is a new landmark of the 7th District in Taichung. Thanks to the unique orientation of its architecture, the building overlooks the Summer Green Park, opening up the elegant interiors of the residences to panoramic views of the city.

Studio MK27 updates and expands Gama Issa house in São Paulo

Brazilian firm Studio MK27 has renovated and enlarged a house designed by its founding partner in the early 2000s, which features white surfaces and huge windows that open to the garden.
Totalling 700 square metres, the home features white surfaces, formal compositions, and a strong relationship between interior and exterior. The project garnered international attention and was nominated for a World Architecture Award in 2002.

In 2002 the founder of Studio MK27 Marco Kogan designed a home in Sao Paulo for a young professional family. The 700 sqm property with its stark contemporary design attracted global attention and was nominated for a World Architecture Award. Fast forward to now, the growing family found themselves limited in their space and purchased an adjoining lot and commissioned Studio MK27 to undertake the project of expanding their home to accommodate their family needs.
