House B + B (2014) by Studio MK27 – Marcio Kogan + Renata Furlanetto + Architects Gallery located in Brazil. The arrival at Casa B + B – access to the social area – takes place through an architectural route, by an open ramp, located in the east portion of the construction. This space is protected laterally by concrete elements that create surprising light effects and end up acting as protection for weather inclement weather. It is an interstitial space between the protected interior of the building and the uncovered garden. The ramp, long and smooth, extends this transition between the interior and exterior, creating a present feeling of change of environment. This solution was widely used by Brazilian modernism, which consecrated the radical use of ramps as a form of vertical circulation by reaffirming Corbusian precepts on the architectural promenade. There is, purposely, a lack of definition about the nature of this space: internal or external?
