Guilherme Torres is a perfectionist. It says so on his arm. Not in so many words, but via the daft punk quote that graces both his skin and the walls of his studio.
This unofficial motto describes a work ethic and commitment to quality that is readily apparent in his work. The crisp forms, minimalist details, and rich-but-reserved material palettes that characterise his designs are consistently applied across single-family residences, interior renovations, retail fit-outs, and of course... His own home and office. Balancing the rigorous aesthetic of the architecture, a certain playful levity can be found in the interior design of his projects.
The stark forms and subtle surfaces provide an appropriately quiet backdrop for the lively furnishings within, while the thoughtfully arranged spaces benefit from an astute attention to natural light. Taken together, his portfolio of work is an exceptional achievement, especially for someone so young.
