This apartment of 250 m² in the Chácara Santo Antônio neighborhood, south of São Paulo, was designed by the architects Claudia Yamada and Monike Lafuente, responsible for the Studio Tan-gram.
To create an interaction between the residents and the environment, the professionals invested in architectural and design devices that promote well-being and harmony, a practice called sensory architecture.
The addition of natural elements, textures, lighting, sounds, fragrance and arrangement of furniture and rooms was designed to create cozy environments.
Sophistication and exuberance are synonymous with this project, which worked with an intelligent carpentry that proposed practicality to the property.
Wood entered as a guiding thread to cover walls, create niches, panels and design the entire functional woodworking scheme, making it possible to integrate the rooms and making the walls unnecessary.
In the entrance hall, a wooden bench was positioned for visitors to take off their shoes and store them inside the furniture itself. The porcelain floor and PVC mat ensure easy maintenance, cleaning and sumptuousness of the place.
The living room, living room, balcony and gourmet area were united in a single environment, but each space remained with its own characteristics and purposes.
The integration of the balcony, for example, favored natural lighting and, consequently, the entry of sun rays to bathe all the plants present in the apartment.
The carpentry, both in its traditional color and in the burnt red tone, offers colored spots throughout the property – the mimicked entrance door is a great highlight, as it intensifies the feeling of spaciousness. The dining room panel is made with natural American oak wood.
Above the futon bench, a vertical garden extends along the wall, which is covered in relief mosaic, creating movement and texture on the balcony. To complete, a rug with jute, cotton and chenille threads was included in the decoration.
The kitchen, also integrated, creates a complete gourmet balcony with the right to an exclusive view of the capital of São Paulo.
The space includes a barbecue grill, a gray quartz island with a carved champagne bottle and a two-burner cooktop. Hanging locksmith shelves also have lighting, transforming the space into a great place for socializing and partying.
The lighting project is another factor that constitutes the charm of this project, since it is coupled to the woodwork and illuminates cabinets and niches from the inside out.
With bricks and aerial vases in triangular details, the bathroom displays LED lights and a mirror between the floor and the ceiling, contributing to the luxury of the environment.
Even though they are private spaces, the dorms have gained touches and features that make them inviting and pleasant.
These rooms also have a lot of wood in their decor, an indispensable item when it comes to creating cozy and warm environments. Thus, walls coated with the material, as well as bedside tables, guarantee sensoriality.
