ERETZ by Fernanda Marques Arquitetos Associados
ERETZ is an inspiring minimalist home located in Sao Paulo, Brazil, designed in 2016 by Fernanda Marques Arquitetos Associados.
Revolutionizing Social Areas with Pivoting Doors
Fernanda Marques, a renowned architect, introduced pivoting doors to seamlessly integrate all social areas, including a spacious existing terrace. This innovation places control in the residents’ hands, allowing them to decide whether to merge spaces by adjusting the door positions.
Crafting an Artistic Haven
The residents had an eye for art, already boasting an impressive array of objects and paintings. However, they hungered for more. “Finding me was fortunate for them,” states Fernanda, an art aficionado. She expertly assisted them in expanding their collection, featuring notable artists like James Kudo, Marcia Xavier, and Arthur Lescher, to name a few.
In a bid to spotlight this exquisite collection, she strategically left some walls unadorned. Fernanda elaborates, “My aim was to foster engaging conversations among diverse artworks, ensuring each piece stands out rather than merely blending in.”
Embracing Minimalistic Elegance
Fernanda’s design showcases her penchant for minimalism. She crafted interiors emphasizing fluid movement and strategically placed iconic contemporary furniture. Highlights include the Terminal One chaise by Jean Marei Massaud and the Papilio armchairs by Naoto Fukasawa.
Shedding Light on Art and Design
The home’s lighting doesn’t simply illuminate; it accentuates. By meticulously balancing direct and indirect lighting, each artwork and furniture piece basks in its own spotlight, capturing viewers’ admiration.
