Contemporary design aesthetic in Brazil: Real Parque Loft

Real Parque Loft was designed for a recently married young entrepreneur by Diego Revollo Arquitetura, located in the south zone from São Paulo, Brazil, in a strictly residential buildings neighborhood. The buildings were built in the 80 and 90 decade and for this reason, the architects started from a traditional compartmentalized apartment with exaggerated number of divisions and closed rooms related to its area.

The main challenge was to open the 1,130 square foot (105 square meters) space, bring the sense of amplitude within the existing structural limitations. In this sense, the owner, was willing for profound changes and already felt attracted by the spatial characteristics of lofts as well as the contemporary aesthetic common in these cases.

The idea of a box with just a coating, burned cement, would bring the contemporary aspect and look like “clean” without amendments or interruptions and would be applied on all surfaces such as floors, walls and ceilings. A particular care has been taken into account in choosing the gray’s tone, which should be modern but not too cold and close by the natural cement’s tone. In the baths we used for the slabs the natural Oasis Blue limestone with a similar tone of cement, employed only as an alternative to cement, to be more appropriate for slabs and carved sinks.

For the owner a cold or too modern result wouldn’t please him, he searched an elegant atmosphere but also comfortable an “hot”. The suggestion of the office was the alliance of the cement and the natural wood inn a reddish chestnut brown tone to “heat up” the environment and that would add value in decorative point of view.

In some places such as the entrance, dining bench and the balcony seat, the Cumaru wood, a Brazilian’s hardwood with high resistance was used by rules to make the wood “weigh” even more. Where the use of solid wood wasn’t viable either by weight or by the natural movement, we chose for the Pau Ferro sheet, a wood with enough personality and a similar design to the Jacarandá, one of the main wood used in furniture production peak in Brazil in the 50 and 60 decade, for example.

The furniture and interior design continues with the choice of textiles as the natural linen or the distressed leather and prioritizes the warm touch and comfort always against the coldness of the cement box. The end result is a loft without excesses, spacious and extremely pleasant to live.
