First-class living and cooking
Cooking is very much the focus in this villa in São Paulo. And that is why architect João Armentano incorporated not one but two kitchens by LEICHT.
This dwelling with its two building complexes is situated on a wooded plot of land in São Paulo. It is both sophisticated and representative, and features integrated spa areas, a home cinema and a gourmet kitchen. The dishes prepared in the two kitchens by LEICHT are truly first class.
The inhabitants enjoy the calm surroundings, with numerous old trees, on three floors, but particularly when they are outside in the spacious free areas and at the pool. The striking, protruding flat roof provides shade and protects the residents from the rain. This is a major advantage in an area with constant temperatures that has just as much rain as it does sun.
Eating together in elegant surroundings is very much a focus of daily life. This was something the architect could fully appreciate and thus implement in his planning, as he too is of the opinion that the kitchen is the centre of the house. The building is in fact home to two kitchens by LEICHT: a main kitchen with a striking central island which at its ends can be used as a bar, as well as a gourmet kitchen with a „hot table“ (teppanyaki).
Gourmet kitchen and main kitchen by LEICHT
The main kitchen, also referred to as the „functional kitchen“ by the owners, is primarily used for everyday cooking. It was the express wish of the owners that only the very best materials be used here and that a unique, spacious room be created. The Orlando range is used in the main kitchen; the fronts of the tall units, functional run and cooking island are made of expressive peat oak.
In contrast to the main kitchen, used most of the time by the owners, the gourmet kitchen was designed for cooking and spending time with friends: although basically designed as very functional and thus ideal for cooking together, it was the owners‘ express desire to make it „exquisite and ingenious“. Here they opted for the IOS range with fronts made of elegant, matt glass.
High-grade materials in all areas
There is a skilful use of precious woods, glass and stone in all areas of the residence. It is not just characteristic the two kitchens and the „Social Hall“, the name João Armentano uses to denote hall and staircase. The spacious dining room is not far from the main kitchen on the ground floor. As is the case with the rest of the building, this room is characterised by a cool elegance and bears all the marks of the architect.
