Osler House, Brasilia, Brazil by Marcio Kogan



On the ground floor we find the rooms that open to the outside using rotating wooden panels, and a small lobby that connects the second floor with a delicate staircase. The lobby is decorated with a panel of tiles specially designed for this wall by the artist Athos Bulcão. The small foyer in the entrance connects to the second floor with a delicate staircase.




The second floor is organized in a prism of glass and concrete, where nothing vertically interrupts the visual transparency of the volume. On the roof of the ground floor, connected to the living room, the terrace extends the external area.




In front of the entrance of the Osler House, located in Brasilia, there is a panel of tiles by the artist Athos Bulcão, designed especially for this wall. Dozens of buildings in Brasilia have panels by Athos, among them are: Planalto Palace, Itamaraty and the National Theater, all by Niemeyer. The artist’s modular tiles are an outstanding feature incorporated into the modern architecture of the modern city: from the beautiful residential buildings of the 60’s on the city’s south wing to the original projects for the institutions of the Brazilian political capital.767675440_17a-casaosler-claudiodupas-22082007215457300_first-floor-plan7738672_second-floor-plan
