Santos apartment was undertaken for a young art collector couple in their late 20’s. They requested a timeless, elegant and serene home. The 1950’s apartment is located in the trendy neighborhood of Jardins, São Paulo. The renewal of it’s 120sqm was designed to integrate the living space fully, while clearly defining three different functions: kitchen, living room and home office, whose rhythm is given by a thoughtful sequence of volumes and voids.
The curation of materials is very precise to reinforce both the cohesive identity and the fact that no detail was left unchecked. Door handles, switches, faucets, and even windows, were entirely designed by Atelier PECLAT+CHOW and produced locally. Not as neutral as one might think at first sight, the apartment shelters a curated selection of modern Brazilian pieces, such as Zanini ́s and Hauner ́s armchairs, together with international icons, anonymous articles, and a few art pieces.
Further emphasizing the importance of design and architecture as a single, coherent project, Atelier PECLAT+CHOW also designed the white sofa and armchair, the marble coffee table, the kitchen table, and some lighting fixtures, along with all built-in furniture. (Published with Bowerbird)
