The “Santo Agostinho” is located in the central area of Belo Horizonte, in a building projected by the architect Oscar Niemeyer and it benefits from a splendid view of the city. The home was entirely renovated by the Brazilian architect Gislene Lopes, who succeeded to create a loft dominated by a refreshing retro style, which gives it a special identity. The internal original architecture was kept and the façade was replaced with large windows that offer a beautiful city view. The living area is connected to the kitchen and bedroom by a sliding door.

The entire space benefits from abundant natural light and, in order to create space sensation, the sliding door of the bedroom is a mirror door. Using a harmonious color range, Gislene Lopes gave a strong, easily remarkable, personality to each social area. The decorations powerfully underline the retro aspect with eclectic accents: the black and white ceramic of the kitchen, the multitude of small pictures from the bedroom and living room, old clocks and coffers etc. Even though it doesn’t have a large surface, the way this apartment is compartmented and the abundant natural light and the mirrors give the impression of spatiality and helps one enjoy the welcoming and refreshing atmosphere.
