Designed by Studio mk27, the Toblerone House is located in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Three horizontal concrete planes create a simple structure with two distinct spaces. The ground level is designed for entertaining, with glass walls interspersed with slender steel columns to minimise obstruction of the view out into the garden. Mindful of the humidity and heat that is characteristic of the city of Sao Paulo, the upper level is wrapped in retractable screens of wooden slats, encouraging lots of air to flow through the sleeping spaces at night and light to filter through during the day. Simplistic and very much concerned with its surroundings, the Toblerone House is yet another stunning example of Brazilian residential architecture.
