A young couple and Magali, their “four-legged daughter”, in Sao Paolo, Brazil sought to transform a 146sqm rental apartment into their new home, providing space, work and colours with personality, all to be delivered in 2 months.
The challenge for designers, Angá Architecture, was to unite all the existing furniture, of different styles, and the beveled floor plan to quick and cheap solutions in order to create a relaxed space for the couple.
They attached one of the bedrooms to the living room, leaving plenty of space for Maga to run around and for the couple to entertain friends. The torn down wall was imprinted on the floor with burnt cement and the pillar gained prominence once it was peeled. The enlarged room received a green wall. Following that, the color blue bathed the intimate corridor into the dressing room. The hue leaked into the other rooms as well, bringing the freshness of the beach and the tranquility of the sky.
Working from home was already a reality in the couple’s routine, so a planned and comfortable space was essential. Therefore, one of the rooms was designed exclusively as a working environment. Inspired by the pleasant and relaxed atmosphere of the beach, the ceiling was painted in sand tones and the client herself made the blue gradient texture on the wall.
In the dressing room, they chose to take advantage of the existing millwork, which was transformed with blue and white paint. This cheerful family loves prints and collects decorative items and good memories! Therefore, a house designed with them ended up with a lot of color, unusual solutions and a lot of personality. Modern, rustic and colorful!
