A cosy space to reflect, reconnect and renew one’s energies, where comfort and nature meet and well-being finds design, providing unique sensations in a warm space. These are the traits of the 48m² space presented by architects Fabiana Silveira and Patrícia de Palma, from SP Estudioat CASACOR São Paulo, taking place between September 21st and November 15th at Parque Mirante, adjacent to Allianz Parque.
Marking their second time at the biggest decoration and architecture showcase in the Americas, the studio offers new meaning to the urban refuge and a reflection on how to live more lightly through sensations explored in the space, brought on by the senses: touch, through the textures and materials used, smell, through the natural aroma, hearing, through the soundtrack especially conceived to bring levity, and sight, through the whole, that brings visual comfort to those who enter it.
The inspiration came from the creative DNA of the studio, that has as its pillars: the care for comfort and sensations that the space brings, the customization through curatorship and unique pieces designed by the studio, and that the outside nature – translated as abundant light and plants that clean and purify – can somehow cross the boundaries and invade the space, creating this connection called by the studio as “outside in”.
The pillars have a direct connection to the theme of CASACOR, “The original home”, place of warmth, comfort and stories. That steers away from artificial perfection and brings truth, living in harmony with its imperfections. From the Original Home was born Casa Ninho, a space of genuine connection between the physical space and those who inhabit it.
The reusing of materials that would have been discarded is present in the space through the wooden floor from an apartment from the 1960s, that was to be discarded in a construction, and was restored by the studio. Used in the living room and bedroom, after the showcase, it will be donated, to continue writing its history.
One of the highlights of the project is the project is the tile developed by the architects in partnership with Colormix, that will be launched at CASACOR. The coating that carries the name of the space, is designed as a deconstructed nest, with three different pieces that form the drawing when placed in a line, reflecting the paths of life, that are sometimes clear and sequential, and other times random and apparently meaningless, but the union of the linear and the random form the great drawing of life.
The front is made of extensive panels made of bricks, thecobogó, classical element of Brazilian modern architecture, and brings visual permeability and natural ventilation to the space, creating a façade devoid of fads, that brings what is essential. Inserted in this panel, a big opening with a generous bench, so that visitors can have a space to rest, and that brings attention to the architecture and creates bonds with the visitors.
The kitchen has a central island that integrates the spaces and invites visitors to stay. With a large lateral window that shows the greenery, a connection between the inside and the outside is established. All of the carpentry of the space was designed by the architects using Duratex patterns. On to the living room, that is centered in the space and connects all the adjacent spaces, you are invited to unwind, appreciate the scenery, recharge your batteries or even enjoy a good book.
The bedroom has a bed that exudes relaxation. The idea is that people can use it and understand that, as the main space for rest, it is as important as the social spaces, and should be given as much attention. Integrated to the bedroom, the bathroom also creates an atmosphere of relaxation, with soft touches and levity, sharing the space with nature and attracting good energy. The same coating applied to the wall and the floor brings visual continuity, harmony and promotes a feeling of vastness.
Even with a small footage, a special space for work and leisure – so necessary nowadays – could not be left out. The home office, facing the plants, brings the connection with the outside, present in all the spaces.
