With library's Cor-Ten shield open, the home’s facade is seen at night. The L shaped pedestrian pathway forces visitors to travel around the perimeter before entry, gradually experiencing the architectural composition step by step.
Following the birth of their second daughter, Reinaldo and Piti Cóser knew they needed a bigger home that could provide domestic refuge from the relentless energy of São Paulo without separating them from it completely. After purchasing a site in the centrally located Jardim Europa neighborhood, they turned to architect and close friend Marcio Kogan to help them accomplish their dream. The resulting structure features a garden that is separated from the living room by only a sliding door, creating one large mixed-use living space. While this gives the home a feeling of tranquility, the rooftop deck yields intimate views of the city, reminding viewers of its nearby influence.
