In a gated community on the edge of a forest, this home rests on a plinth, like a captivating object for display. Sandwiched between the floor slab and the ceiling, four boxes house the private areas, tucked behind vertical wooden slats; and the public zones, encased in sliding glass panels. The spaces between these enclosures create open yet intimate corridors. A gently cantilevered concrete deck and pool add further drama. ­marciokogan.­com.­br
