The Ipes House by StudioMK27 is located in São Paulo, Brazil. This beautiful mansion features a breathtaking pool in the backyard, and the building was built using exposed concrete.

StudioMK27 has done the impossible by using raw concrete through its design and construction of the building. From afar, this building looks like the concrete block is floating above the main floor, which is made entirely from glass. The main floor has a huge living room and dining room table, and on the upper floor there is a TV room and multiple bedrooms.

The wood panels on the facade of the building give the upper floor natural light. This modern building is aethetically pleasing, and the combination of the exposed concrete and wood accents on the facade create a warm futuristic feel.
