Located in the Batel neighborhood, with a privileged view of the Japan Square, the 180m2 apartment was chosen by the couple to be their retreat home at the city where they were born after living in São Paulo.
The briefing was clear and objective: the project should bring their minimal essence, adding comfort, art and design.
With an integrated concept, the kitchen ́s walls were removed, making the plan more free with well defined flow path.
The integration between the areas of the house like the reading area, dinning, gourmet space and the living, was enlarged with the addition of the kitchen area, that was before isolated by a wall.
The floor in porcelain tiles with appearance of concrete, along with the white walls, brings attention to the ceiling, coated in Freijó wood, which is the spotlight of the composition. The ceiling is responsible for guaranteeing warmth to the environment.
The wood ceiling goes along with the longitudinal shape of the plan all the way to the gourmet area, embracing all the spaces.
In order to create contrast between the light colored spaces we brought the kitchen as a dark block by its side. Inside the kitchen we made the best out of the ergonomics and we searched for color and material compositions that were a bit more unusual. The use of the Forest green in the balcony and the metallic copper lacquer in the tableware turned out as highlights of the space.
The project, punctuated by brazilian design items, brings pieces as the Mole armchair by Sergio Rodrigues, the Stand By hatstand signed by Claudia Moreira Salles, among many others diverse design pieces by Sollos and Jader Almeida. These pieces highlights the minimal taste of the couple.
In order to enlarge the space of the master suite, we transformed the service bedroom in a closet and we created an access directly through the bedroom. That made it possible for the couple to have more space, including a reading area that counts with the Pitu armchair by Aristeu Pires.
