This duplex in Curitiba, Brazil has everything you can ask for in the middle of the city. Lots of sunlight and an incredible view over the Barigui Park, the biggest park of Curitiba, on one side, and on the other a urban view of the main avenues of this 1,9 million inhabitants large city.
The clients of this blank duplex (two floors)the two newlyweds, had just returned home from their honeymoon when Giuliano Marchiorato Arquitetos were finished.
The living room boasts two Oscar Niemeyer 70´s chairs that you see the back of in this shot.
Room for social life.

The Giuliano Marchiorato Arquitetos approach was to create a layout that streamlines and orchestrates the uses, designed with a small palette of materials: freijó wood, the scale of ashes and the hides (leather and fur)
From these, the palette were defined and then applied as finishes, secondary elements, and the derivations that dictates the rhythm of the design.
Thus, escaping from the excesses and creating a sophisticated harmony between the outside frames and the internal spaces.

The open plan solution does not incorporate the kitchen. The dining area, living room as well as the viewing room are opened up as social areas whereas the kitchen is closed off.
|The whole back wall in marble |
as well as the oversized
sink with the sloping wash board.
The mirror following the entire wall set on top of the marble with a led light behind makes for a true stone experience, showing off the material in the best way.
Really like the black plain toilet as well.
Outdoor on the 24th floor with a open fireplace
for those cosy fire side nights.
The wood panels from Freijo wood that is native to Brazil and as a FSC marked wood also is sold to the rest of the world due to its good quality and teak like quality and looks.
