Amazing loft in Sao Paulo

Designed by Brazilian archictect João Artacho Jurado in 1956 and located on Rua Maranhão in Higienópolis, São Paulo, the Cinderela building was selling the caretaker’s apartment. 70 m2 on the ground floor, divided into a living room, a pair of small bedrooms, bathroom and kitchen, with only two windows.

Marina Acayaba and Juan Pablo Rosenberg, founders of São Paulo based architecture practice AR Arquitetos, turned the dark and badly divided apartment into an eclectically charming and contemporary loft with rooms bathed in natural light. The enlarged kitchen window has become a wall of glass and a skylight over the inner courtyard of the building.
