The Lagoon apartment acquires color and carioca soul after a complete renovation

The complete renovation of the 140 sq.m. apartment. located in Lagoa, Rio de Janeiro, left the property “carioca style” as the residents wanted.

“They were looking for a house with the color and soul of Rio de Janeiro, alive, cheerful and bathed in natural light,” says the architect. Marina Romerowho signs this project with the partner Felipe Mayaat the office Maia Romeiro Architecture (@mr. maiaromeiro).

The lawyer couple with a teenage daughter asked professionals to create two suites and a powder room in the property, changing the original floor plan to just one suite and a guest bathroom. They also asked for a comfortable room with lots of seating and storage.

“Their dream was a house that would embrace them and be a refuge at the end of a difficult job,” emphasizes Marina.

The project brought contemporary and timeless decor to the apartment, which is intended to be the family home for many years to come. The careful arrangement, with the sofa in the middle of the room, allowed the creation of three different environments – living room, TV room and dining room – but visually complete and without limitations.

“Everything was designed to make the most of the space and highlight its qualities. We improved natural ventilation by creating cross ventilation by aligning, for example, the office doors and the one leading to the living room. We also explored a lot of wood texture, especially of American oak, mixed with tones such as blue and green, to give it life,” explains the architect.

The colors appear on the walls, furniture, window frames and decorative objects throughout the property, bringing unity to the project and a lively carioca touch to the spaces. White and off-white were added in some places to add lightness. The existing wooden floor has been preserved.

In the living room, blue stands out on the L-shaped walls and the back of the living room shelf, creating a counterpoint to the white wall on the opposite side. “The idea was to add color, but always think about balance,” points out Marina.

In the dining room, a large window frame camouflages the sliding door that gives access to the intimate space. One of the rooms was converted into a multipurpose office, which can also serve as a guest house when needed.

Low furniture with rounded shapes, such as armchairs with their backs on the shelf, make a counterpoint to the other furniture, where straight lines predominate. Brazilian pieces with a signature design, such as the pair of armchairs Wedby Sergio Rodrigues, and the two side tables next to the sofa, by Jader Almeida, bring bossa into the environment.
