Apartment renovation at João Moura Street

Endowed with wonderful karma, this renovated flat in São Paulo’s Pinheiros area is located in a 1962 edifice built by a group of friends who once decided to live under the same roof. It is an honest and very simple part of João Moura Street, with beautiful gardens gracing the open spaces of its entrance and garage levels. 

Honoring the homey feel of the place, the new owner’s request was for the renovation, completed in 2015 by RSRG Architects, to transform the 109m². flat into a cozy house. Conscious interventions and a strict budget gave Apartamento João its unique style of deconstruction and simplicity where life revolves around an open space with a kitchen and an adjoining living room, leaving the bedroom, lavatory and laundry to create a more private area. An old service entrance was closed to offer more space and, once the walls were torn down, a new bright light flooded the apartment.
