The architectural reconstruction and conversion of antiquated buildings, particularly in instances where their use is obsolete or outmoded, is a sublime art form.

We love good food and we love to cook, so naturally we were thrilled when we discovered that Berlin-based publisher Gestalten released a new book entitled Kitchen Kulture that celebrates the kitchen as the new living room, a space for social gathering, collaborative cooking, event hosting, and communal dining.

Set in a mountainous region of Brazil – known for its low temperatures – the ‘Mororó House’ has been designed to offer generous internal spaces that provide residents with inviting atmospheres on cold days. Recently completed by Studio MK27, continuous volumes create a stark duality between an opaque block – where the living room is found – and the transparent area which houses a heated pool and sauna. An external wooden deck connects the programs, serving as a solarium to be used during winter months.
