brazilian firm studio mk27  has finished the ‘V4 house’ in sao paulo, completely submerged within its context. the one-storey sub-grade dwelling

stretches to the extremities of the site benefiting from the interior program as much as the exterior garden. along one axis, a wooden box enveloped

in perforated timber panels contains the private bedrooms shaded from direct light and therefore more easily acclimated. a vast exposed concrete
roof mass with integrated beams extends perpendicularly disappearing into the natural stone retaining wall defining the property line, doubling as
an exterior deck on grade. the public living spaces are delineated by four slender columns, wrapped in retractable glass doors to immerse the inhabitant
in the outdoor environment.

‘V4 house’ has been shortlisted in the ‘housing’ category of the 2012 world architecture festival.
