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.

You can see more of Kogan’s work on his website and in Wallpaper’s website.
