In 2001 the office headed by Marcio Kogan took on the name studio mk27. At that time a democratic and collaborative form of working was organized, in which each responsible architect is co-author of the projects, together with Marcio. In this manner of organization, the division of tasks is minimized. The architects accompany almost every phase of the project, beginning with the first client contact to the worksite. This results in extremely elaborated projects, developed to the slightest detail, by architects that work as craftsmen.
Along this line of thought, the team of studio mk27 is constituted by architects with a vast and multidisciplinary formation. Knowledge about art, music, cinema, economy and politics is just as much a part of architecture as is knowledge about design, visual programming and urbanism.
In addition to this select team of architects, that work in a small building in the proximity of Paulista Avenue, in São Paulo, studio mk27 works with dozens of collaborators in Brazil and abroad. This structure makes it viable to develop new projects in the United States, Latin America, Europe and China.
LOCATION: Sao Paulo, Brazil
