Stylist Daniel Bolson is looking for a property that resembles him. And he did it in the historic center of Porto Alegre. The property is the first to be acquired by the architect who already lived in the same building but saw in this unit the opportunity to have a house with his personality.
The 36 m² apartment was all original from the 1970s, with divided rooms, carpets, brown and poorly ventilated porcelain. “I moved almost all of the walls here, I changed everything completely,” explains Daniel, who also reformed all the hydraulic and electrical parts.
The first step was to integrate the living room and kitchen and create an open concept in this area. The living room has been enlarged and the bedroom has been made smaller. According to the architect, the challenge was to fit all of your needs into one compact space in an organized and aesthetic way.
The neutral color palette was chosen to add to the width of the space. The details of Frejió wood warm the environment in contrast to white and concrete.
The greatest intrusion into the room took place in the living room window. Daniel installed doors just like the window frames in the building, creating a balcony with a flower pot to let more air in, and creating a corner for a small vegetable patch.
To prevent the clothesline from becoming too clear, he created a wooden slat wall in the kitchen and laundry room. The cupboard above the sink hides another clothesline and the kettle. The washing machine is also integrated in the joinery. In the bedroom, the space-saving solution was to use a macaw as a closet.
Affective decoration brings out aspects of the architect’s personality. The folding bike is not only decorative, but also functional and is suitable for walks on the outskirts of Porto Alegre. The black Thonet chair in the bedroom is a family item, a classic that was inherited from the great-grandmother.
“This apartment was my first home. Of course, the first property brings a number of spatial and material expectations with it. However, this is not always possible as we imagine. So there is maturation, it may not be the house of your life, but it is a completed phase, ”Daniel concludes.
