An apartment with 160 m² from the 50’s in Paulista Avenue, in São Paulo (Brazil) with a lot of history and customers willing to expose all the marks of time. Superlimão’s project in the Artacho Jurado’s classic Saint Honoré building, won as residents a couple linked to art, architecture and photography and wanted an apartment to receive friends for dinners and get togethers.

With changing priorities in the way of life from the 1950s to the present day, the passage of service between the kitchen and the social gateway no longer made sense in current family use. It was decided to demolish the entire corridor by enlarging the room and unifying the kitchen and the service area, transforming all spaces into social areas. The service bathroom turned the toilet and the pantry turned into one of the children’s bathrooms.

Being an old apartment, the windows are very generous throughout the perimeter of the apartment. The view from the living room and bedrooms is the Paulista Avenue and the kitchen and utility area window makes a cross ventilation. “This São Paulo Condo sought to maintain the maximum of existing finishes to enhance the history of the place” said Super Limão. In the living room the walls were sanded until they reached the structures; in the bedroom / office the walls were peeled to the brick; throughout the floor of the living room and bedrooms were kept the original club.

For the color palette were chosen shades that dialogue with the time of construction of the building and with the building. The burnt pink ceiling with the rustic walls and the whole kitchen in shades of blue and granilite floors and pigmented concrete countertops. In the interiors, the first option was to look for Brazilian furniture, such as the Lucio chair and the Diz armchair by Sergio Rodrigues. The studio chose an eclectic mix of furniture in this São Paulo Condo.

Chestnut Residences by Edmonds + Lee Architects

For this four-story multifamily condominium building, Edmonds + Lee related the massing of the three-unit structure to the neighborhood’s existing context, but contrasted the neighboring facades with the use of contemporary details and a subtle play on plane and volume, all through the careful deployment of a crisply detailed glass box gently nudged into the street.
