Marcio Kogan was born in São Paulo and graduated in Architecture and Urbanism from Mackenzie University in 1976. One of Kogan's greatest passions is cinema. Fan of Ingmar Bergman and Federico Fellini, he studied and served as director until he was 30, becoming a major influence on his architecture.

The sensibility he has in designing spaces is shocking. Carefully gauged in all aspects of space, Marcio Kogan has in his works a perfect harmony and balance, where each perspective, each look, can be enjoyed as rich architecture in detail. And every detail seems to be thoroughly worked, making it flawless.

The search for strong partnerships with major architects makes his work have a unique vision and the same great care of all the professionals involved. In their homes, the interior design is designed with the same particularity and details of the rest of the work.

He won many awards for several of his projects and, like Isay Weinfeld, is now one of the best architecture firms in Brazil. And as we can see in his portfolio, his career will be increasingly recognized and admired, the fact being that today his works are already an inspiration to many.
