Pascali Semerdjian Arquitetos Employs Sustainable Wood Throughout This Spacious Home in Brazil
2022 Best of Year Winner for Large Apartment
This 4,000-square-foot residence for a Brazilian man, his American wife, and their two young daughters celebrates São Paulo’s inimitable urban style. Inside a nondescript 1990’s building, the gut renovation by Pascali Semerdjian Arquitetos centered on employing sustainability-certified indigenous wood throughout the four bedrooms and spacious public zones. It’s in the latter that a deeply Brazilian and vividly cosmopolitan aesthetic shines. In the kitchen, a 9-foot-long table of South American freijo wood cantilevers from a monolithic concrete island—a defiance of physics that recalls São Paulo’s iconic buildings. In the dining room, Bertjan Pot pendant fixtures hang from the exposed original ceiling, complemented by walls paneled in board-formed concrete. And a multitude of seating vignettes, including one anchored by an Oscar Niemeyer chaise longue, populates the living room, making it an extremely social space.
