Apartment Or Art Gallery? Step Inside This Brazilian Residence Filled With Modern Art

Designed by InTown Arquitetura, by the architects Alexandre Gedeon and Hugo Schwartz, this over 3,500 square foot apartment is located in Ipanema, Rio de Janeiro. With modern style, the apartment was completely demolished to be prepared to receive the collection of works of art of the new resident.

One of the project’s greatest needs was to create a large closet, plus two suites for the kids, a video game room, and plenty of walls to house the artwork.

With a privileged view, facing the sea, the living area is defined by a large living/dining room, office/home theater and gourmet kitchen. At the back of the property are the two suites of the children and the master suite.

As the footprint features two large internal prisms, practically all the environments have natural lighting and ventilation. One of the great highlights of the apartment, the natural wood floor was a request of the resident. The choices of the textures of the walls highlight the colors of the works of art.
