A couple with a young daughter invested in this apartment 150 m² to renovate and resell, but during the work he ended up falling in love with the transformations and decided to move and live in it.
Located in Ipanema, a neighborhood in the south zone of Rio de Janeiro, the property received a living room, kitchen, couple’s suite, daughter’s suite, office and social bathroom designed by the architect. Henrique Ramalho.
The main objective was modernize the original plant, which was very compartmentalized, especially in the kitchen and bathrooms, and to improve circulation. Therefore, all the rooms were changed, only the woodworking in the daughter’s room was kept.
“Overall, we bet on a clean and timeless architecture, without excesses and we adopted a color palette in neutral tones to highlight the joinery, which is more elaborate, the numerous furniture of signed design and the works of art that were already part of the collection. customers and were used”, explains the professional.
In the decoration, the bookcase that goes from floor to ceiling on the side wall of the room, made in natural freijó at the bottom and in ebonized wood at the top, is a highlight, bringing different niches for adornments and books. Providing visual unity and helping to define the TV living environment, the rack was also produced in freijó.
In the same space, another element that draws attention is the coffee table signed by the designer Jader Almeida, finished in turquoise lacquer, brought from the old house of the residents.
The original parquet floor in the living room was badly damaged and ended up being replaced by a matte porcelain tile that imitates calacata marble. In the intimate area, as the taco was in good condition, the coating was restored, making the rooms more welcoming.
Another highlight of the project is the window which occupies the entire length of the room (which is 11 meters wide and 50 m²), in a white aluminum frame, designed by the architect, with eight sheets that can be completely retracted to the side.
