Luxury Apartment in São Paulo by Piratininga Arquitetos Associados
Piratininga Arquitetos Associados designed this apartment for a client who shares the luxury apartment with his son, and the project was carried out bearing in mind the fact that the residence is for two men, each of them occupying a part of the space. Photography by Maíra Acayaba.
The apartment was reconfigured entirely; the son´s sector corresponds to the former utility area and the father´s area occupies the former bedrooms. In the social area, a volume built in concrete panels structures the equipment storage, pantry, library, refrigerators, television sets, rest-rooms and others. The original solution in the window openings was integrated to the new projected occupancy, creating unusual spatial relations, also internally and externally. The original project dates back to 1952, by Architect Abelardo de Souza, one of the icons of the modernist movement in Brazil.
