Tetris House is a splendid residence located in the heart of São Paulo and designed by the Brazilian Studio MK27. It is a longitudinal structure that blends with precision into the surrounding nature, alternating built volumes with open spaces in perfect balance with one another (it is no coincidence that the name recalls the “geometric” videogame of the eighties). The building, with an overall height of almost 12 meters, is completed by a wooden box hooked onto the ceiling and another set on the ground that forms a mezzanine. The living room is bounded by a wooden wall that contains a library and a fireplace, and is the result of the unusual configuration of the plan which connects the entrance with the rear of the house. On the ground floor are located the bathrooms and a dining zone that faces directly onto the garden, where there is naturally an infinity pool. The night zone, accessible by means of a staircase with cantilevered steps, is located on the upper floor and is made up of four bedrooms plus a suite with a panoramic view. It is fitted with wooden panels that act as a brise soleil, retain heat and provide shelter from the wind.
