Brazilian architect Marcio Kogan and his architectural practice Studio MK27 have a reputation for creating jaw-droppingly sexy houses in a visual language that defines the notion of tropical modernism. We’ve already featured two of their houses on Luxuryculture – see Casa Lee and The Punta House – but we couldn’t resist taking a virtual tour of Casa P, yet another example of a contemporary residence that could only be built in Brazil.

Located in the leafy Sao Paulo suburb Morumbi, the house comprises of three cantilevered boxes that rotate around a central staircase. “The P house is a puzzle game,” says Kogan of this structure. Each box is a concrete frame with sides closed by freijo wood folding panels – one of many references to local design that give the house its Brazilian identity.

Luxury is found not just in the impressive volumes but also in the details – in the concealed lighting that is flush with the floor, in nooks such as the dressing areas and in the seamless fusions of the interior with the garden and swimming pool. From top (where a roof terrace overlooks the Sao Paulo skyline) to bottom (even the basement garage is a sexy showcase for vintage cars), it is, in short, perfect.
