FJ House by Studio Guilherme Torres

Masculine interior design? My first thought was: only testosterone. An old, boring 80’s apartment in São Paulo redesigned and renovated by Studio Guilherme Torres feels now like a trendsetter night club: a modern garçonnière of a successful, single bachelor. 

Linear led lighting running through concrete-finish walls and ceiling, create an interesting stage-like effect. Custom-made wooden furniture mixed with famous statement designs, a few vintage pieces and colorful adult toys... effortless ‘high-low’ style. And a black bathtub residing in the main bedroom... true bohemian spirit.

  4. cool design. And I love concrete. But I miss the feeling of light and airy rooms. Feels a bit like an air-raid-shelter - know what I mean? :)

  12. wow...this is cool, unusual and bold.
    p.s.: there is a smaller Rothko exibition, no images from a hotel lobby, not many lights but the paintings themself are enough. Incredible vibrant colors!

  15. Hard-soft comes to mind. I love the pastel stripes that contrast against the concrete surrounds. The lighting is stunning and totally softens what could be a bunker-type aesthetic!
    They could have so taken the minimalist approach but great that they chose colour instead. There's the magic right there!

  16. I especially love the chunky legs of the blue plastic stool and how well it goes with the artwork of the pink pigs.

  22. I definitely love this home, that cool and amazing concrete grey tone is soft and powerful at the same time. It has to belong to a creative professional, these rooms inspire the creative impulses for sure!

  24. I love the space, a LOT, but that doesn't look like concrete to me. Looks like venetian plaster, which would be much easier to install and maintain on all those surfaces.
