Paulista

Apartment

Client: Private | Architect: Triptyque
Surface: 840 m²
City: São Paulo | Country: Brazil
Schedule: 2010 – 2011

The “Paulista” project, designed and renovated by Triptyque, is an exceptional residence. Inhabited by the spirit of São Paulo, the renewal of this architectural penthouse has been driven by two factors:

– The history of the Paulista and the decorating styles that made its great days. The wonderful epoch of Brazil’s “modernism”. The project was inspired by the integration of the city and its spirit in every detail of the decoration.

A judicious choice of materials (tiles inspired by Athos, the concrete furniture, exotic wood species) … and volumes (powerful geometry “Brazilian Concretism”). It is impossible to forget the urban poetry of São Paulo, through a “rail system” change, the situation of the room, literally crossing the avenue of the same name.

– And the ‘design’: a liberated plan, the space highlighted – the strength of this project – a tribute to the technical nature of Brazilian engineers from the 70s. Fixed elements, such as a library, a capsule window, a panoramic acoustic office space … constitute the rhythm of this giant penthouse. Some elements, such as space-son, take the shape of the ellipse that characterizes the openings of underground channels under the Paulista, located under the building.

Sophistication and the senses are the main characteristics of this unique and luxurious design, with a decidedly urban soul. Illustration of a radical expression of the architectural concept.
