The Brazilian architect Filipe Ramos was responsible for the renovation of a 1950’s Brazilian apartment in São Paulo. The owner of the top floor apartment is a young man, who works from home several days a week and also travels a lot.
The top architect decide to kept the original concrete slabs intact and exposed as they work just as well today as then did in the 1950s.
The owner likes to throw parties so is needed plenty of seating, for that reason the architect used large scale furniture and created a room for dance floor.
The modern dining room is a step up from the living room and features black stained concrete floors.
One high point of the apartment decor is a Jean Prouvé Potence Lamp that was installed on a concrete column and it can be moved from the living room to the other side wherever light is needed.
Filipe Ramos designed the desk with wheels on it in case the owner wants to move it around. White shelves were installed to hold toys and collectibles that he brings from his travels.
