São Paulo is probably one of the most beautiful Brazilian cities, and also, one with the most stunning interior design projects. That’s why today we’ll show you an incredible penthouse design by local office Studio MK27, that really caught our attention due to the modern floor lamps and mid-century furniture that give a unique touch to the space.
This huge property, named sp_penthouse, is split over three floors that look out over the Brazilian city. The luxurious apartment also features floor-to-ceiling grids of wooden shelves cover double-height walls.
Studio MK27 designed the interior for clients with an expansive collection of art and objects, so provided plenty of opportunities to put these on display.
The most dramatic feature is in the top-level library, where the high walls are covered top-to-bottom with a shelving grid.
Built from dark wood, these niches houses books, plants and various trinkets. The modules are only interrupted by the entranceway and large windows that provide spectacular views across the city.
Stanley standing lamp has a unique sculptural shape. It’s a versatile piece which gives a sophisticated and classy ambiance to any setting. A style icon of the ﬁfties and sixties.
Also on the top level of the penthouse is a spa area complete with a small pool, a winter garden and a gym. “The pool is positioned in continuity with a dense garden – even having small tress,” said Studio MK27, “in this way creating a tropical atmosphere together with the Minimalist place of bathing.”
The same wood forms panels across the ceilings and generous corridors on this floor, which act like gallery spaces for paintings and larger artworks.
“The fundamental premise was for the architecture to create a cozy and solemn atmosphere, where the fixed furniture of the room – designed especially for this place – would be in harmony with the classical design objects, such as the sofas and chairs,” said the firm.
Spaces on the floor below include a kitchen, a home office, a dining room and a living room, while the lowest storey contains the bedrooms. These more private spaces are decorated with softer materials like carpets and linen gauze curtains, all in a lighter palette of ochre and beige.
