The L House by the Brazilian creatives at Studio MK27 can only be described as not just a work of art, but a real life construction of a Mondrian painting.
Surrounded by lush Brazilian jungle, L House is an oasis that combines elements of both organic and artificial, contrasted between bare bones minimalism and elegant antique fixtures. Fittingly, the organic yet rigid silhouettes by Secto Design seamlessly encapsulates this design dichotomy, seen extensively in various sizes and forms throughout the home.
Flooded by natural light, the house features an organic, earthy aesthetic filled with an abundance of natural stones and smooth granite slabs in the stairs and surfaces. The interiors resemble a labyrinth of complex networks with vaulted ceilings and elongated hallways, featuring one compartmentalized room leading into another. Each space is linked together with the use of lighting design; from the large Magnum 4202 Pendant Lampshade in the living space and bold 4202 Pendant Lights in the bathroom, to the demure desk lamps in the upstairs office, all by Secto Design.
The L House is aptly named for the structural shapes present in the building, everything from the pool that extends the length of the backyard to the cavernous entryways are all perfect rectangles – a cubist construction that is precisely calculated from every angle.
