The concept highlights and values the use of noble materials such as leather, oak floors and Greek marble, but has also developed solutions to make this apartment unique, seeking in French leather goods and especially in the equestrian environment the references to compose and animate the interior of this apartment. As an example, the wine cellarde signed exclusively by the young couple, composed of a metallic structure and leather straps, reminiscent of horse harnesses. In the main room, with a double ceiling of 5m, a wall panel designed by the architects was installed, in cement, proper to the urban universe of São Paulo, which gains elegance by being composed of geometric shapes connected by gold metallic profiles.
One of the suites and the kitchen have been integrated into the living room to create a unique and widespace: the suite bathroom has become a guest toilet and the bedroom will now beused as a home office and home theater.
In the center, conecting all the spaces, the kitchen island with the cook top puts the chefatthe focus of attention.
The French-Brazilian agency was able to gather and integrate great names and brands of Brazilian furniture design, such as Jader Almeida, Marcelo Ligieriand studio Bola, while the house hold appliances chosen are the result of the collaboration between Philippe Starck & Gorenje.
