Contemporary Furniture Store Volume B in Sao Paulo, Brazil

The Volume B store in Sao Paulo, Brazil by architect Marcio Kogan is modern concrete cube filled with contemporary goodies. Roughly hewn visible concrete forms the skin of the building and covers a steel frame. There is just a rectangular glass sliver at the bottom of the cube to merchandise Volume B’s wares and entice potential clients.

The interior walls also seem unfinished and still have the original chalk markings left by workers during construction. The external floor is made of pebbles which are also used to mix concrete. The vaulted ceilings and color-mutating lights make it feel more like a hip nightclub than furniture store.
