Renowned architect Marcio Kogan and his São Paulo-based practice Studio MK27 have long been considered a creative powerhouse behind the tropical modernism movement began by famed architect, Oscar Niemeyer, decades ago. Characterized by “low-profile frames, uninterrupted lines, and interiors fashioned from acres of polished Brazilian wood” as Architectural Digest once described, Kogan’s homes are — in his words — “architecture in cinematic widescreen.” In short, Kogan knows how to create a landmark house.
Staying to true to this tradition, his latest residential concept just made a splash in Miami Beach on Pine Tree Drive. Recently listed for $25,750,000 by powerhouse duo, Jill Hertzberg and Jill Eber — the No. 1 real estate team for Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate in Florida — the 15,000 square-foot modern home is a masterful achievement of concept and design. Brought to life by Brodson Construction and featuring the magnificent landscaping of Raymond Jungles, the residence is a perfect representation of Kogan’s interpretation of tropical modernism.
Set on one of Pine Tree Drive’s most desirable lots, the residence stands as an oasis in its own right with approximately one acre and 100 feet of coveted waterfront. Indoor/outdoor living is a main theme, expressed through pocket doors in the second floor living space and ground floor master bedroom.
Many rooms blur the lines between the indoors and outdoors, capturing stunning ocean and water views. A warm and natural materials palette of exposed concrete, stone and teak wood underscore the meticulous attention to detail throughout and enhance sense of tropical modernism permeating throughout the entire residence.
Six bedrooms offer both luxury and privacy.
Raymond Jungles brings the stunning landscaping to life with 1,800 square feet of outdoor entertaining terrace space, a 200-foot bridge overlooking a man-made lagoon, a clean linear pool and 2,250 square feet of gym space with an official NBA indoor half court.
