Six years have passed since the model and presenter Marianna Weikert don’t stay Rio de Janeiro and this is already his second apartment in the city. “I’m the personification of change,” he says. After leaving Blumenau, SC, where he was born, at age 15, spending another six years in New York (interspersed with stints in Milan and Paris), and settling in São Paulo for 12, he’s always moved from work, moving to the capital. of São Paulo from Fluminense was driven by love: in 2017, she married businessman Arthur Falk and the two settled in a wonderful address – a part of Leblon farther from the beach and with lots of trees.

It turns out that, then, the design of the space was designed for a childless couple. The space even hosted the arrival of the now 5-year-old Teresa. When Felipe, who just turned 3, was born, the routine became a little complicated, as the noise from the kitchen, open to the living room, invaded the little one’s room. “We needed space,” explains Mariana.

Apart from the practical reasons, there was a recurring discussion between Arthur and Mariana about the desire to experience the beauty of the landscape more closely. “We live in one of the most beautiful cities in the world and we didn’t have an amazing view from the window,” he recalls – the old apartment overlooked the neighboring buildings. When they visited a friend, they got the stimulus they needed to start searching. “From its roof, it was possible to see the greenery of the Botanical Garden, Corcovado and Christ the Redeemer. We were so amazed that we left there and immediately started looking at real estate websites,” he says.

A short time of searching turned up this gem – a sea view apartment on the first floor of a 1960s low-rise building. park The peroba-rosa, in excellent condition, could be used and the plant as a whole did not need major conversions. “We thought we would only knock down his wall dinning room and move us as soon as possible,” reveals the resident. Although the idea was more of a one-time intervention than remodeling extensive, Mariana and Arthur decided to turn it on Hedgehog architectureoffice headed by Beto Figueiredo and Luiz Eduardo Almeidaresponsible for the design of the property where the family lived until then.

The peroba-rosa parquet floor was not only preserved, but also inspired being of the room, from the same wood. “We propose a piece of furniture that extends the view of the floor and acts as a gallery in the passage to the guest area. bedrooms,” Beto details.

Although unassuming, the collection continues to expand and includes works sold at auctions, bought on trips and works by artists discovered on social networks.

As a result, it took the family a little longer than expected to move, but the wait was worth every minute. “Being on the first floor, at the height of the coconut trees, I have the feeling of living in a house,” says Mariana. “Everything was tailored for us. We were very satisfied.”
