Brisa House / Memola Estúdio
Textual content description supplied by the architects. Regardless of the space contact with the couple of shoppers who lived in Buenos Aires when the challenge began, our relationship was all the time one in all full proximity. They had been conscious of our work and chosen references from our initiatives to specific their expectations for the brand new home.
On one hand, the reform ought to replicate the cosmopolitan way of life of the contractors – Brazilians who lived in a couple of metropolis overseas and met whereas residing outdoors of Brazil. Then again, the invitation was to use our artistic ideas, of residing the brand new with the previous, of rustic or industrial with objects or programs that print delicacy to the environments. The problem was to reformulate the condo by discarding the minimal of what was already able to stay.
The scenario was that of a residence with a really vibrant front room, though devoid of a terrace, and bedrooms accessible by an intimate wing. Additionally, the kitchen was remoted from the social space, with which it related by an space for the eating desk. The format modifications aimed, then, at remodeling one of many bedrooms into an workplace visually built-in with the lounge, however able to being closed for privateness, and increasing the kitchen added to its better reference to the lounge. The shoppers admire cooking and love to do it whereas protecting in contact with the dynamics of the home.
Thus, the structural alterations, demolition of partitions, and modifications in moist areas, had been concentrated within the middle of the condo, the place the lounge is adjoining to the reformulated environments to satisfy this system. A part of the intimate hall was annexed to the workplace however, in compensation, the previous wardrobe was changed into the social space so as to function a sideboard for the eating desk. The previous pantry was eradicated and absolutely integrated into the utterly redesigned kitchen – and we inverted the format of the sink and basin of the bathroom to enhance the place of the doorway door within the atmosphere. Additionally, the wall that served as a backdrop to the social entrance was demolished, enlarging the opening of the kitchen to the lounge.
Guided by structural inspection, these modifications weren’t visually omitted. The concrete surfaces spotlight the unique construction – a sum of beams of various heights and never all the time aligned with one another – and the eliminated masonry is demarcated by cement strips that cross the pre-existing wood ground.
The workplace was surrounded by a set glass body, paginated in horizontal bands on the face dealing with the lounge and the one subsequent to the eating space. Thus, an fascinating visible relationship is created between the atmosphere and the lounge advantages from the better ingress of pure gentle. All new inside frames observe the identical pagination logic and, glazed, collaborate for the better luminosity of the condo. A brand new passage door was created for the bed room hall and a brand new set of home windows/doorways was created to attach the kitchen to the service space on the again.
The brand new format is of a kitchen island, with a big countertop product of chrome steel – embedded on one facet and supported on the opposite, on a discreet pillar product of the identical materials. To stability the economic language and the shortage of cupboards, a show cupboard product of demolition wooden was designed and particular care was taken within the alternative of stools subsequent to the counter, whose consolation for lengthy stays was a precedence for the shoppers.
The visible neutrality of the supplies predominates, counterbalanced by the spotlight of the challenge: the tiles. Dominantly in gentle tones, they cowl lengthy surfaces – the 2 faces of the wall base between the lounge and the workplace, a few of the pillars, the in depth L-shaped countertop designed for the lounge – and have particular pagination, with the spaced insertion of items in a burnt yellow tone. Thus, colour and graphics are added to the challenge, giving youthfulness to the general ambiance.
The selection of all of the furnishings was a part of the challenge, together with scattered items of mining. The repackaging of the loos was delicate however impactful, with the substitute of coatings and the redesign of cupboard doorways, and the lighting provides basic gentle with punctual, made by equally mining luminaires.
