Rua 141 | Arquitetura e Design as Arquitetura I Design and Production

180m2 apartment signed by RUA 141 becomes an urban refuge for a couple with a lots of tropical vegetation and brazilian design

The idea of improving different environments guided the design of Rua 141 at SM Apartment, in São Paulo (Brazil). The 180m² apartment, which had underused spaces, is the home of a couple who likes to have friends over. “We have transformed the apartment into an urban haven. We have chosen not to integrate the internal and external areas. Therefore, we have explored the balcony with elements from the outside area, creating an atmosphere with freshness and elegance. The memory of this space has started to permeate the entire apartment", says Mona Singal, who runs Rua 141.

Green walls have been created and have become the protagonists of the terrace. Each one has an independent automated irrigation system. The cumaru wooden deck designs the floor, the landscaping has brought nature closer and the two large curved benches warmly welcome people. Different materials and textures have been explored, such as metal and stone, in the terrace shelves. The main challenge was about the layout of the terrace, which is curved. “We took advantage of this geometry and designed the benches following the terrace shape. The largest bench is 4m long made in natural freijó wood, accompanied by handmade cushions and blankets. For both terraces, we have created the same style so that it looks like a single environment, avoiding fragmented spaces ” according to Mona Singal.

The barbeque space, which was rarely used, now has got new meaning. We have created a bookcase with niches that received Brazilian design pieces. This space invites visitors to relax in the terrace near nature. The toilet has got more personality with an industrial style, using burned cement on the walls and black fixtures. The highlight is the Ostra wall light by 80e8 Design, made exclusively for Itens store. “Ostra wall light has brought a little poetry to the toilet, which has a thin and delicate metallic shell, and allows the opening and closing movement as if to protect the inner pearl represented by the globe of light”, completes the architect.

For the master suite, a neutral palette was chosen to bring coziness. The headboard upholstered in suede, the knitted cushions and master knitted blanket, the built in bed side tables in wood has brought texture and sophistication to the environment. The room has got personality with Brazilian design pieces, the photograph above the headboard is almost a window to nature, and the table lamp, Balancinha, designed by Tiago Curioni, has provided light and movement.

In the master bathroom, natural materials were used to bring texture and freshness, such as hijau volcanic stone on the shower area walls and in the wall to wall niche, and freijó wood in the cabinet.
