Generous space for entertaining, an abundance of natural light and breathtaking view toward the busy metropolis, glowing and light ambiance where one can relax – all in one package, provided by the renovation of this urban apartment in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
The architects from the local design studio David Ito choose to entwine the luminous whiteness of the clever architectural construct and walls (some of which move to hide or revile functional zones) with light, cheerful color accents: the hot millennial pink of the lounge chairs is complimented by the dove gray hues of the large sofas, the baby blue entwines with darker sea hues and composes strong focal accents like the gorgeous tile wall cladding, the minimalist wine cabinet or the ingenious cube with the hidden drawer. This delicate coloring and the lightness of the decor composition gives a certain relaxing glow to the ambiance.
Generous wooden cladding and accents in combination with trendy furniture pieces, thin, elegant lines and silhouettes provide a welcoming and contemporary feel to the design composition. The eclectic mixture of ultra-modern furniture pieces, classic shapes, and retro-inspired details offers a dynamic and youthful vibe to space.
The main living premise open layout offers a functional combination between zones – the folding white panels separate the kitchen with its unformal and light design, combining floor tiles with patterns, pure white wall metro tile cladding and elegant and straightforward furnishing with, again, graphic decorations. Then the wooden parquet starts and leads to the dining zone and the living quarters – all furnished in a combination of classic and modern Brazilian furniture and colorful chic accents including the custom-made structures (like the wine cabinet in standing-out blue). Aerial white curtains separate the garden and bar space that is formed in front of the vast panoramic windows.
This closed balcony space offers a luminous abundance of white furniture pieces, lush plant life in intriguing pots and 70’s inspired bar. The blue patterns of the wall tile composition are replicated in the upholstery of the cushions creating a continuity of an idea. The same distribution of varying blue shades can be observed in other places throughout the apartment and especially noteworthy is the beautiful structure of a bench and whimsical cube with hidden drawers. Another cheerful touch in the light modern chic design of this luxurious urban dwelling. Photography by Pedro Kok
