Located in the neighborhood of Jardins, in São Paulo, and with a privileged view of the city, the 170 m² property was chosen to be the first address of the young couple. To make it as nice as the surrounding region, the owners chose the architect Nildo José to be the person responsible for the renovation that would make the apartment look new.

To bring warmth and sophistication to the new home, Nildo introduced customers to the universe of exclusive pieces and signed by renowned designers.

In the dining room, the highlight is the Ameba table, signed by the office in marble calacata. In the kitchen, the cabinets, also designed by the Nildo team, were executed by Basile Joinery. In addition, the architect idealized the cabinet bookcase, the stainless steel side table and the slatted wood lining, which gives a welcoming touch to the social wing.

The side table and the mantelpiece Domino, by the Brazilian Polish-born Jorge Zalszupin, give a final touch to the decoration.

Nildo José

A graduate of Mackenzie Presbyterian University in São Paulo, the young Bahian architect Nildo José has always aimed at a clear goal: “Architecture needs to take people’s breaths away, tell a story and be the setting for happiness.” Added to this central challenge is a great connection with design trends, contemporary visual arts and a passion for functional spaces.

The architect bets on a degree that goes beyond his studies. He believes in “eye training”, in the influences and images of different places and cultures, which are assimilated and mixed with the traditions and materials of Brazil. As a result: projects with an international language with a Brazilian essence. Elegant, young, alive, dynamic and humanized environments.

NJ+ is composed of young architects, the team includes, aside from Nildo José, hea: Virginia Lopes, Danielle Groszmann, Marcelo Rizzo, Gabrielle Tafuri, Ana Olivia Prado, André Longuini, Alvaro Ajej, Andre Longuini, Diego Guido, Bruno Perez, Flavio Hernanes and Anna Clara Mattar.
