Los requerimientos estaban claros. Crear espacios de lujo, cálidos y muy luminosos; de estilo moderno con toques clásicos, siempre con especial cuidado a las necesidades del cliente, el distinguido Sr. Rodolfo Chiari. Nunca llegamos a conocerlo en persona, pero gracias a la ayuda de su acogedora esposa, logramos traducir sus necesidades a espacios en su nuevo hogar. Fue un proyecto, de altos y bajos emocionales, que quedará como memoria viva del cliente y será disfrutado por la familia a largo plazo.

La distribución de la casa en planta baja comienza con un gran vestíbulo en doble altura, con dos escaleras subiendo a planta alta, una de cada lado. Este espacio simétrico fue revestido en su totalidad con láminas tipo ladrillo de «travertino split face», creando textura y calidez.

Se hizo un diseño especial de barandas con varillas entrelazadas en bronce con pasamanos en cuero gris claro realizado por Improdema.

En el piso se mantuvo el mármol blanco cepillado 80×80 cm con un diseño de alfombra tipo chevron en mármol blanco y gris claro. Con el mismo gris claro se revistieron las huellas de las escaleras para producir contraste entre huella y contrahuella, uno de los requerimientos del cliente. Todos los revestimientos en este espacio son de Artecasa. Hacia los lados, dos puertas con vigas protagónicas, una hacia el área de servicio, y otra hacia el estudio.

El espacio después del vestíbulo es la sala, que reparte al comedor y a la sala de música. El estudio de estilo «clásico contemporáneo», sería el espacio favorito y dedicado al cliente. Un espacio con alma propia. Se revistieron todas sus paredes, cielo y puertas en boiserie (es un término usado para definir a los paneles de madera en paredes); panelería de madera del estilo francés del siglo XVIII, en color blanco.

El cielo, a siete metros de altura, tiene un trabajo de tallado por un artesano colombiano.

Al salir del estudio hacia áreas comunes (o al llegar al estudio desde áreas comunes), hay un detalle en las paredes con un «racimo» de bolitas de vidrio iluminadas de Bocci y un revestimiento de papel tapiz espectacular Inverted Spaces Ursa de Calico. Es un papel que celebra el universo, convirtiendo imágenes satelitales de Nasa en un retrato de constelaciones en su papel metalizado. Continuamos con la sala de música. Un espacio que fue rediseñado según la arquitectura existente, para lograr amplitud y unión entre sala de música, sala de juegos y bar.

Aquí había requerimientos de contemplar un Grand Piano y espacio donde colocar un tocadiscos y muchos discos LP.

Todo el espacio tiene un juego entre lo clásico y lo contemporáneo, tanto por sus revestimientos como por sus muebles.

Las paredes están revestidas con un papel tapiz texturizado con un patrón inspirado en alfombras orientales, trayendo un arte ancestral a el lujo moderno, la simetría oriental es relajante y los tonos gris, beige y azul complementan el ambiente.

Haciendo juego con el cielo, el piso está revestido en madera con diseño irregular geométrico Slide de Listone Giordano. La sala de música tiene un «librero» para discos LP en madera en forma de arco, con un hueco al centro que alcoba dos salas simétricas y el mueble para tocadiscos.

Inspiration
The design team never got to meet the client in person, but thanks to the help of his welcoming wife, we translated his needs into the design of their new home. The purpose of the design was to make an emotional narrative with highs and lows that would remain as a living memory of the client’s character and will be enjoyed by the family in the long term. The «classic contemporary» style studio would be the favorite and dedicated space for the customer. A space with a soul of its own.

Unique properties
This is a residential interior design. The colonial architecture with a redefined modern interior design and the use of brass, leather, crystal, stone and wood, which are commonly classic materials, in a modern environment, makes a starting point to make this house unique. Every single space in the house, from the kitchen to the music room, has a WOW effect.

Ceilings, double heights, materials, walls, everywhere you look there is something that inspires you. As you enter the house, a double height hall covered with stone walls, brass staircase railings, white marble flooring and a crystal parametric custom-made chandelier welcomes you. As you enter the study room / den, you feel as if you were transported to an old Parisian castle that has been recently renovated with new furniture. As you enter the music room, the prime wood ceiling and English themed wallpaper with Chester leather sofas and patterned wood floor transports you to a British gentlemen’s club.

The dining room was acquired at an auction and the entire space revolves around this. Wallpaper, ceiling, carpet and lighting where chosen specifically to showcase the furniture. The living room has a brass structure that gives the space a sense of coziness in this ultra-high space. The kitchen floor was covered in cement tiles in white, burgundy and gray, with an ultra-modern high gloss white kitchen cabinetry.

The master bedroom is like a continuation of that Parisian den, with moldings all around the walls and ceiling and a four-post bed in the middle. Every space has some unique elements and style and you can say is a conversation space, not piece.

Operation, flow, interaction
The Living room is the central space of the house, which has access to important spaces on all sides: the lobby, music room, dining room and terrace. Everything is linked by sliding windows that can be opened to connect the spaces. The room, also with double height, has its own soul as it is luxurious and exudes a lot of peace. The color palette is cream, light gray, gold and melanzana. It has in the double height a design in brass slats and cherry a lamp Heracleum Big O of Moooi.

The living room is furnished with two Bohemian sofas by Busnelli in light gray leather and three armchairs Archibald by Poltrona Frau in melancholy color. In the center, a table Lapiaz of Boca do Lobo in mirror and gold leaf. To complement, a carpet of wool and silk with high relief Fontenay New Age Edition Bougainville.

Production and realization technology
An interesting space to design was The Studio. All their walls, ceiling and doors were dressed in boiserie (a millwork wall covering constructed from rigid or semi-rigid components); 18th century French style wooden paneling in white. The seven meters high ceiling has a work of carving by a Colombian craftsman. A five-meter high blue wooden bookshelve was incorporated, favorite color of the client, with stairs with details in bronze.

The floor was lined with a historic floor salvaged from a chateau in Burgundy, France, from 1850, following the instructions of Antique Parquet, the supplier based in Vienna, which is dedicated to rescue and collect ancient wooden floors. To complement the bookcase, from the double height hangs a lamp of almost three meters, Barovier and Toso, model Torpedo, Taif, in blue.

The space
was decorated with a Boulevard desk by Boca Do Lobo, a Downtown President executive chair by Poltrona Frau in blue leather, in play with a Cube Console by Poltrona Frau in light gray leather. In front of the bookshelf two chairs Lui V of Fratelli Boffi of golden wicker and an auxiliary table of marble Ilary of Poltrona Frau. In the living room, a Flexform L-shaped sofa with an Ilary Poltrona Frau coffee table and a Cobalt rug by The Rug Company.

The space in the dining room was designed according to a table in wood and blue-green color that the customers acquired in an auction in England. The dining room was combined with a carpet in the same color, of Edition Bougainville. In the ceiling, a design of bevelled mirrors was made with addition of Tom Dixon Mirror Ball lamps in gold. In the background of the dining room, Calico Wabi gold wallpaper, and a work of art, still life by Alfredo Sinclair. The kitchen is very bright, modern and warm. All in white and Snaidero wood. With a custom design in floor of pasta with 16 formats combined in black, white, gray and burgundy of Granada Tiles. In the sky, work perimeter light and top of the island a large screen in tensoflex, wood and glass.

The main room also has a very peaceful atmosphere, inspired by the classic and the past. The corners of the room are curved, the ceiling is clad in wood paneling with moldings, just like the bottom of the walls; all in white. The floor is clad in chevron wood from Listone Giordano. The room has a four-post bed, in a light and sophisticated version, the Volare by Poltrona Frau. As a console for TV, a Soho of Boca de Lobo.

Research
The research was made basically through the web and with some artisans. The idea of the research was to better understand Parisian interiors, the use of mouldings in modern architecture and examples of modern interiors in classic environments, as well as the possibilities of hand carved wood, wood veneers and brass.

The design team was the main participant in this research process, as well as a Colombian wood carver and a carpentry company. Also, the client had a retina problem and there were specific light conditions that the house needed to have. For this, we hired a lighting designer and specialist to better resolve the issue.

The creative challenge
The hardest part of this project was the sourcing of the materials and labor, which was mostly imported from several parts of the globe. The client was in love with the design approach from the beginning and wanted to have everything as showed in the initial concepts, which made everything easier throughout the project.
