Designed by Studio MK27’s Marcio Kogan, Casa MM boasts a luscious grass green roof that acts as insulation and also a continuation of the landscape. Due to the extreme sunny weather, the walls are equipped with floor-to-ceiling wooden brises soleil that filter the natural light coming in while providing some privacy. With an open plan design that lets air flow freely, this beautiful modern home lets the outdoors in.

Made from concrete, wood and glass, the house’s interiors are big, accommodating several people, while the outdoor wooden deck features a lounging area for relaxation and sun bathing just steps away from the pool. A modern dwelling ideal for enjoying family life and good weather, Casa MM makes the most of its surrounding nature.
