Anchieta Apartament

Mutabile Arquitetura as Architects

The clients are a young couple who like practical and integrated spaces. The building, built in the 70's, with a structure formed by two concrete bowls and consequently only two pillars, adopted the concept of radical separation between kitchen / service and rooms. To access the kitchen it was necessary to go through the pantry and the service area. The project, attentive to the social use of the kitchen, brought it to the entrance of the house, making it contiguous to the living rooms and expanding the living space of the apartment.

 

The shape of the structure gained strength in the more open configuration of the space, generating a focal point in which the kitchen-living room division was made through a nanoglass countertop. The choice of furniture was based on comfort and authenticity, as well as coverings.

 

To solve the desire for fabric curtains, a plaster molding was created that serves as curtain and lighting molding. In addition to illuminating the environment in a more indirect and evenly distributed way, this molding causes the light to sweep the concrete bowl, highlighting this material in space. Rails for the rest of the lighting aimed at minimal impact on the structure and flexibility in choosing light sources.

Customers wanted a kitchen with retro elements, justifying the light blue and red color palette, as well as details in the joinery such as moldings and shell handles.

 

The project as a whole internally transformed an almost 50-year-old building to meet contemporary demands, valuing the main architectural elements and brutalism.
