From the architect: Patricia Martinez is a brazilian architect that has been working with design and architecture for 17 years. She expresses her influences through the use of straight lines and minimalistic, living and dynamic environments. In addition to national projects, she has a working language closely related to international architecture, having signed projects in countries like the United States, Sweden, Spain and many others.
The projects of the Patricia Martinez architecture studio are fluid and translate sensitivity almost as a hand craftsmanship work. And to orchestrate the elements of the founder's own house, it couldn't be different. The 180 m2 apartment in São Paulo, Brazil, was designed to transform her house into a moment of restoration of the spirit - which, according to the architect, can be provided by silence and through the use of white elements. Therefore, the project has a neutral overall base with Scandinavian inspiration of colors and textures, all being gently complemented by design elements chosen by her in a fluid and spontaneous way.
According to Patricia, "We don't need much, I believe we need items that relate to us." Researching and thrift shopping, she let the furniture find her and this spontaneity of the choices worked as an instrument of comfort that qualified the environment and transformed the house into a temple.
