Article source: FGMF

The first intervention in this apartment was the demolition of all walls and separations that seemed superfluous to assure greater expressiveness of its best characteristics – the spatiality created by the double height ceiling and large windows.

Sliding Pergolas House in São Paulo, Brazil by FGMF

Tuesday, January 31st, 2017

Article source: FGMF

We were asked by a couple of a local University to design a residence of compact programme in a 500m² (5380ft²) site in a gated community. The husband, a technological-research specialist, longed for different-than-usual housing solutions, and had come into contact with our work through our “Tic-Tac Residence” concept-house (link below), that had been published a few months prior. His wife, on the other hand, wished their home to be more on the conventional side, but also put a lot of value in the relationship between the built-object and the site.

BPGM Law Office in São Paulo, Brazil by FGMF

Saturday, January 28th, 2017

Article source: FGMF

Called for a bid of an architecture project for two floors of BPGM Law Office, we came across with a clear division: One floor – larger, operational –, and another – slightly smaller, for meeting rooms and administrative area.

Once defined the clear division between the functional and social floors, the need to represent the view of BPGM Office to the clients and lawyers fell back on the first one.

The LRF Apartment in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil by Paula Martins Arquitetura, Interiores e Detalhamento

Wednesday, January 25th, 2017

Article source: Paula Martins Arquitetura, Interiores e Detalhamento

This old four bedroom apartment has been completely remodelled according to the wishes of a family with two kids who enjoy entertaining friends in an informal atmosphere. To accomplish this family had one wall in the kitchen area demolished, and to make it easier to maintain covered most of the others in wallpaper. Wooden pieces of furniture in the living room provide an air of cosiness to the property, and the coffee table was specially made out of a unique wooden tree trunk, bringing some rusticity to the room. The wallpaper used in the kitchen, in a citric green stripe pattern, adds a nice contrast to the neutral colours in the other rooms. A mirror was placed on one of the walls in order to create the illusion of a bigger kitchen. Glass sliding doors add a sense of privacy when necessary.

The BWW Apartment in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil by Paula Martins Arquitetura

Tuesday, January 24th, 2017

Article source: Paula Martins Arquitetura

Located in a very nice area in the city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, this 260 square meter apartment has a complete view of the Guanabara’s Bay. It was purchased by a young couple and fully remodelled according to their wishes and desires. The interior was conceived to create a pleasant atmosphere, in accordance to the owners’ style. The new finishes and pieces of furniture are mostly white and their elegant and contemporary look adorn the room. The BWW apartment is a project that is considerate of the couple’s gatherings during the weekends. It would be perfect for anyone looking to create new dishes and to watch movies with family and friends. In order to make room for those activities, one of the bedrooms was demolished so that the living room could be enlarged. Since the owners also needed a spacious kitchen, it was removed one of its walls to make room for a black quartz table which plays a central role in the room.
