Kwartet Architects Create Contemporary Interiors for Barra Funda Apartment, Brazil

Brazilian-based design studio Kwartet Arcquitetura were commissioned to design the interiors for a small apartment in Sao Paulo for a trendy young couple. The building had only just been completed when they were instructed to design the interiors. The luxury apartment is located in a residential neighbourhood of São Paulo, Brazil.

A few changes were made in order to improve and also to rearrange the master bedroom, including the closet in order to create a unique and cozy area.

Kwartet Arquitetura, said, : The owners are a young couple that travel a lot and want to have children, so because of this, we decided to keep the other two rooms, using one of them as an office. In the living room we created a ‘travel corner,’ the most important feature, where they can display all their memorabilia from their trips.”

The firm interior decorated all the final pieces and undertook all the carpentry. They also designed the upper door trim, up to the ceiling, to create a sensation of high ceilings. The baseboard followed the same concept. The Tauari flooring and the wood home theater panel provided a warm atmosphere contrasting with the bright yellow bar table and gray buffet lacquer – classic design pieces stand alongside contemporary ones.

In the bedroom, the headboard was built with eight MDF panels upholstered with linen and sconces fixed on the surface. The white and golden petit poa wallpaper and the dark blinds finished off the room to give it that sophisticated look. Images courtesy of Lilian Knobel.
