Studio AG office signs penthouse renovation in São Paulo, Brazil

Studio AG Arquitetura as Architects

The 235m² duplex penthouse was the choice of artist and influencer from Minas Gerais, Sophia Mattar, who arrived in São Paulo two years ago. With the desire to live in a property with open spaces, minimalist, elegant, but above all a true haven of peace, he hired the architects Amanda Castro and Giovana Giosa, from the Studio AG office, to lead the renovation of the project.

The generous 60m² outdoor area, with a backyard style, became even more cozy after being fully integrated into the social environments. All the walls on this floor, with the exception of the structural ones, were torn down, including the other balcony, which gave space to the dining room, which provided multipurpose, relaxing and uncluttered environments.

The client wanted a flexible decoration, which would house different compositions, and that had a soft palette of colors, since her daily life is very busy. In this case, the professionals opted for light and adaptable pieces that would dialogue with each other. Soft tones, different textures from the wall paintings and natural fiber fabrics from blankets and pillows, give the monochromatic style.

In the dining room, the Zettel’z pendant, by Ingo Maurer, from FAZ Iluminação, is the highlight, which shares space with the three Claudia chairs, by Aristeu Pires. The custom-made demolition wooden table and the bench with a wooden back and straw were also exclusive creations of the office.

The living room, next to the stairs, received a pair of Infinito armchairs, by Lia Siqueira, from Etel. And the staircase has also received spatial attention, being incorporated into the panel for continuous prominence. The outside steps, lower part, were made of stone.

The washing was a point treated as a surprise and a lot of affection. As everything in the apartment was in neutral tones, the idea was to dare a little, to take a stronger wallpaper, with life and a more botanical theme, but at the same time it was delicate. The bench was also designed by the architects and developed in concrete and metallic.

For the bedroom, the idea was to bring a little rhythm to the ceiling by placing beams and light fixtures between them. The composition of the constructive details, with the low bed, plush rug and a log next to the bed, was to create a more oriental atmosphere, a natural rustic.
