The apartment that used to be all compartmentalized had its original floor plan almost completely modified. Bringing the strength of the feminine and the lightness of shapes were the guiding concepts of this project. Dividing the program between the two floors was crucial for the client’s routine, as integrating the living room with the kitchen was fundamental for the functioning of the environments. The kitchen is almost like an extension of the living room, and for this the choice of materials was an important factor, the granilite countertop and the mixture of wood makes this transition light and interesting.
The materiality of the project was thought to transmit lightness and seriousness. In the living room, the organic niches and the mirror, designed by the office exclusively for this project, give personality to the environment. Besides the mirror, other elements such as the dining table, coffee table and rack were also designed by VOA Architecture. The rack with doors in natural straw and curved sides, besides being a highlight element of the project, contributes to a more comfortable circulation.
The upper floor of the apartment is destined for intimate environments, especially the music studio, which was entirely designed to house the instruments, records, and space to compose. The bookshelf, also designed by the office, plays with empty spaces and doors in natural straw, giving the studio an identity. The natural lighting that this space receives makes the perfect scene so that the permanence in the room transforms unique experiences.
For the master suite we opted for a serene environment, with mineral texture on the walls and bringing an element such as the solid wood headboard worked in half cane and natural straw. The intention of the proposal was to bring a room with a cozy atmosphere. The suite’s bathroom was designed to be large, bringing the same identity and materiality of the other rooms of the project.
