Studio MK27 Crowned Winner of Luxury Lifestyle Awards for Best Luxury Resort Architecture: Patina Maldives, Fari Islands

Luxury Lifestyle Awards, a global awards initiative renowned for recognizing excellence in the luxury segment, is elated to announce Studio MK27 as a winner of its prestigious award in the Best Luxury Resort Architecture category. Their masterpiece? The awe-inspiring Patina Maldives, located in the exquisite Fari Islands.

Rooted in São Paulo, the bustling heart of Brazil, Studio MK27 was conceived in the late 70s by the legendary architect Marcio Kogan. Kogan, the founding director and mentor of Studio MK27’s team, holds esteemed positions in the AIA, Politecnico di Milano, MASP, and MUBE. Moreover, awards such as “Wallpaper’s 150 Famous for 15 Years” and the 39th position in Dezeen’s Hot List 2017 only scratch the surface of his accomplishments.

The devoted teams, led by a quartet of directors, have brought a contemporary take on modernism to the global stage, capturing hearts with their signature simplicity, profound attention to detail, and illustrious designs.

Having won over 250 awards globally, including the WAF, Architectural Review, and the Wallpaper Design Award, Studio MK27’s renowned reputation precedes them. Their mark at the Venice Biennale of 2012 as Brazil’s representative and their upcoming presentation for Brazil at Expo Osaka 2025 reflect their significant influence in the world of architecture.

Their recent magnum opus, the Patina Maldives, encapsulates a dreamy oasis where architecture merges with nature. Delicate designs, subtle architectural lines, and structures that amplify the environment rather than dominate it showcase Studio MK27’s unmatched vision. The resort embodies the very essence of luxury: a confluence of comfort, aesthetics, and a profound respect for nature.

Patina Maldives champions environmental conservation with initiatives like zero-waste kitchens, marine plastic recycling, and coral projects. Partnering with the Olive Ridley Project underscores its marine conservation commitment. The resort aims to meet 50% of its energy from solar power by 2030 and emphasizes sustainable construction, biodegradable materials, and an anti-plastic approach.
