PARATY HOUSE BRASIL | BY MARCIO KOGAN
Marcio Kogan, Brazilian architect known for his elegant, calm, minimalist designs. The Paraty House, pictured here, is located on one of the hundreds of islands near the colonial town of Paraty, close to Rio de Janeiro. Before it was completed, Kogan predicted that it was to be his favourite house. Its simple premise is two large drawers pushed into the hill and connected by an internal staircase.
