From the architect. This house is an original construction of the 40s,it belonged to a great Brazilian artist, Victor Brecheret, the man behind great references in the city of São Paulo, Brazil. After the artist’s death, the property has never been occupied and during decades itserved as a Foundation of part of his collection and a deposit. The architect Guilherme Torres was immediately attracted by its compact size (130 m²) and the privileged location in one of the most charming streets in the Jardins neighborhood in São Paulo.

The main concept was to update the building, reflecting the contemporary language of the newcomer. The floorplan has not suffered many changes.The only things that has been changed over were the gaps, openings and coatings. All the walls were covered with drywalls and received in some parts white paint and in others, a coating that resembles cement texture.

Up the stairs, from the original construction, you can see an art piece of Pinky Wainer, also responsible for the façade neon with the say: ‘land of the free, home of the brave’. The master suite’s toilet is connected to a mezzanine above the kitchen where a bath tub was created. A retractable glass roof can be opened on summer days, to help leaving a mild climate. To soften the rays of sun, a wooden muxarabie, a registered trademark of the architect, was used as a covering following the same pattern of the front door of the house.

The architect chose this property to live and work. With just over 30 years and works in broad expansion, Guilherme Torres is considered one of the great names of Brazilian architecture. Coming from the interior of Paraná state, Brazil, where he established his first office serving many cities of Brazil for 10 years. Guilherme wanted to translate in his own new space, the best way of a cosmopolitan life with a hint of pop.

The Studio Guilherme Torres moves from style to style developing architecture and interior projects and also signs a furniture line. The architecture receives timeless traits, a result of Guilherme’s admiration to the EscolaPaulista de Arquitetura Modernista, which had its heyday in the 60s and 70s. For interiors the tendency is always to reflect the inquietude of our days. And design is a perfect match between both styles. One can simply look to the house owner to understand the symbiosis between creation and creature. Guilherme is a lover of street art, electronic music and loves to create new tattoos for himself, and it is inside this cauldron of references where he receives his clients and friends.

Minha pergunta: não tem um ponto de iluminação na casa? Só serve para ser usada de dia com iluminação natural? Fachada bonita, interiores fraco.

PAQarqBR · February 17, 2012 01:38 AM

Observe atentamente as fotos que é possivel ver onde estão dispostas as lampadas que iluminam a sala, que por sinal foram muito bem pensadas.

Algo que gostaria de entender melhor é como funciona a transição entre a cozinha e a sala e principalmente como é feito o fechamento deste espaço, ja que na descrição do projeto diz ter sido coberto com vidro, gostaria de saber a solução encontrada para a ventilação natural?

Antes que eu me esqueça, excelente trabalho!

TM · February 17, 2012 01:08 AM

É séria a pergunta?
O interior é minimalista e só porque você não vê um espalhafatoso pendente de 2 metros de raio não quer dizer que não tenha ponto de iluminação (absurdo sequer pensar nessa hipótese).
Bom projeto, com uma certa identidade que arquitetura brasileira vem formando nos últimos anos.
