The 57-year-old Brazilian-born architect Marcio Kogan is well known for his award winning residential masterpieces. In his recent project, The Paraty House, he exemplifies his elegant, minimalist, beautiful and clean style. Kogan stated that he drew inspiration from greats such as Frank Lloyd Wright, Ingmar Bergman, and Andy Warhol for his latest residential project. The Paraty House is located on one of the hundreds of islands near the colonial town of Paraty, close to Rio de Janerio. The true elegance of his project comes from the seamless link between outside and indoors. His use of native wood, stones and vegetation helped make the house appear as if it was apart of the natural landscape. What do you think?
