Tauari by Beatriz Quinelato Arquitetura
Recently designed by Beatriz Quinelato Arquitetura, this midcentury office space is located in São Paulo, Brazil.
The Tauari Project was developed for an office that operates in the financial market. There are five partners, four men and one woman who came together to open their own business. As they are franchisees of XP Investimentos, they had to follow some rules related to physical space, internet, telephony, security, among others. Based on these specifications, they decided to invest in an architectural project to impress their customers and perform for XP. At first, the partners asked Beatriz for a more sober style of commercial office. Despite being a young team, they thought of something more traditional. Hence the challenge. Create something conventional with a contemporary language. “We did a little job to“ convince them ”that nowadays it is possible to have a cozy atmosphere in the work environment”, reinforces Beatriz Quinelato. This type of proposal increases well-being and productivity. We spend more and more time at the workplace, and this journey is transforming how environments are designed. Today features previously considered exclusive to home, are translated into offices, large companies and commercial spaces so that the environment increases people’s interaction with spaces. Thinking about this concept, Beatriz created one of the meeting rooms with that atmosphere of a living room, with armchairs and a sofa by Lider interiors, where once again the architect shows her skill in the composition of environments. The room, predominantly gray, white shark color from Coral, was harmonized with the elements in black and a touch of green to maintain the connection with the rest of the project. “In the larger meeting room, with tables and chairs, I really wanted to put chairs like a dining table, but I lost that clash. So I looked for a beautiful chair so that it wouldn’t look like a dated office ”, comments the architect. Connected through the range of colors, the Tauari project has a soft and contemporary palette.
