From the beginning, we wanted to give a contemporary, modern and urban air in this house. A young New York style, “high low”. All, is about concrete! It is prevalent throughout the project, being present on the walls, floor and ceiling. We left the structural “French hand” (diagonally structure), which divides the kitchen área. This well strengthens the overall concept.

A large concrete bench is part of the living room composition. Sometimes it can be used like this, and others, such as sideboard for objects and pictures. Toward the gray, we have two strengths colors point: a pink sofa and an yellow door, that give access to the service area.

Regarding natural coatings, we use some raw materials such as “Stone Wood” (Brazilian and inexpensive type) on the walls that divide the living room área, the suite and bathrooms.The large kitchen stand we used a black Brazilian stone, “San Gabriel”, with polished finish.

In the toilet, the sink was modeled in concrete and the part inside was covered in San Gabriel gross stone. Also in the lavatory, with the displacement of the wall during the work, we let a copper pipe, an originalone of the building, apparent. In the master bathroom, the stand and the sink were shaped in a white marble “nanoglass”, a chemical compound made by dust marble.
