Wallpaper Magazine: Kogan awarded “Best new private house 2010”

By , January 28, 2010 3:14 pm

After ranking second at the 2009 Leaf Awards, the celebrated Brazilian architect Marcio Kogan was awarded “Best new private house” at Design Awards 2010 by British magazine Wallpaper* for his Costa Verde house.

Located in a private cove in the region known as Costa Verde, just south of Rio de Janeiro, the stylish summer house of clean lines sits practically on the white beach sand, surrounded by the untouched native greenery.

We are very happy for this award as our mosaics were the glass tiles of choice for this project. At Costa Verde, the infinity pool flanked by a handsome ipe-wood sundeck was finished in ¾”x ¾” Vidrotil glass mosaics, color 409. What is more, the organic texture of our handcrafted mosaics do look great in this setting… just saying…

Our congratulations to Marcio Kogan and his team and thanks for working with Vidrotil!

Marcio Kogan’s Panama House

Reflecting Pool - Marcio Kogan's Panama House Despite Marcio Kogan being widely known for the excellence of his architectural design and for the international awards he has been accumulating over time, it is always a renewed pleasure to see his work getting high praise from architects in the media and on the Internet. A quick Google search shows the buzz that his spectacular design of the Panama House has stirred up on the web after taking second place in the 2008 International Design Award.

In this residential project, Kogan once again materialized his preferred mix of contrasting materials – here, in stone, wood, glass and concrete –, the “box” form and the intention of the design, carefully attending to details. Like his other designs, Kogan’s Panama House boasts a refined economy of forms and shares a same general ambience of breathability, luminosity and lightness – an inspiration and a great treat to the eyes.

In the Panama House as well as in many other projects by Marcio Kogan, Vidrotil glass tiles play a prominent role as external and internal coverings. The swimming pool and the reflecting pool you see in the picture were clad in our green 240A 2N and 3400 sq. ft. of white 610 and blue 480 mosaics were used in internal areas.
