Located in São Paulo, the duplex of 290sqm in a penthouse was bought by the client – a young single man – already furnished and, therefore, there wasn´t an identification with the existing decoration.

The CR2 Architecture project, signed by the architects Clara Reynaldo and Cecilia Reichstul, came with the proposal to renovate the space, leaving it more modern.

The intervention in the social area and in the bedroom allowed the resident to continue in the house during the works. The challenge, however, was to think of a palette of colors and materials that pleases the client.

The predominant tones and materials were wood, corten and shades of gray. The balcony was modified, receiving a cover to allow a greater use and in it was installed a barbecue.

For the interior design, the architects opted for a comfortable and neutral furniture, leaving the colors for the works of art, or a small coffee table.
