Text description provided by the architects. At the entrance to Sertão Portinari, visitors will pass through a portico covered with Grand Metal ballast. An imposing choice to enter the space that enhances earth tones. The choice of colors was inspired by a palette of tones present in the works of the greatest Brazilian artist. The arrival presents rusticity, elegance and enchantment. An element reflects the air of the sertanejo region, with a large Mandacarú welcoming you.
Beneath intimate, welcoming lighting, the flooring throughout the space is covered in the Boulevard collection, giving the floor a dirt-like appearance. In this color palette dominated by earth tones, the monochromatic is broken with a touch of cheerfulness in the blue of the Acqua porcelain, which represents the sky and the water. It is in the promise of rain that the faith of the sertanejo crystallizes. Life is going beyond the obvious, it’s seeing with sensitivity the beauty of details. A look at everyday art and even a colorful and lively sertão.
The project, poetized by Nildo José, brings integrated and fluid environments, having Brazilianness as the main concept. With a look at cozy interiors, with fewer elements and a smooth, flowing aesthetic, it is possible to find the balance between organic shapes and straight lines.
A breeze formed by the Senses Decor bricks surrounds the whole environment and refers to the rammed earth construction system: the use of clay and wood to create walls. This relationship creates an unusual effect between the rusticity of Sertão and the elegance of the innovative proposal in the arrangement of porcelain stoneware. Still valuing the versatility of Portinari porcelain tile, the home office table and kitchen counter explore the grandeur of Gran Metal ballast. With Ornare joinery, the central bench with straw details serves as a station for cooking and, at the same time, sharing good times.
In the center of the space there is a circular island that divides the functions of the house, where on one side there is a bar and a fireplace, forming a living room, and on the other, part of the structure serves as a bathroom. The minimalism present in this relationship between interior and exterior reveals a deeply artistic and modern side and another that does not renounce functionality and elegance. The bathroom has glass and a mirror by Silvestre Vidros, which connects to the bedroom. In it, the Double Bed, by Wentz Design, forms a space of comfort and relaxation.
The environment consists of a living room, a living room, a kitchen, a dining room and a master suite with a home office. In the kitchen and bathroom, Deca tableware and metals stand out. On the ceiling and walls, Nildo used Duratex coverings in the Nogueira Veneto pattern, a reworking of classic Italian walnut, which harmonizes tradition and contemporary.
In the social area, the dining room and the gastronomic area have a rectangular table, produced by Sandra Ortho Esculturas, with a special design by the architect for CASACOR, and Bambolê chairs, by +55 Design, complete the production. On the ceiling of the living room, a large luminaire ensures a more relaxed air to the environment, which has also won the imposing Sofá Abapo, by Roberta Banqueri.
The space is organized by furnishings that permeate established and new designers, such as Poltronas Paraty, signed by Sério Rodrigues; Kanga armchair, by Ricardo Van Steen; Ondine armchairs, by Jorge Zalszupin; Cordial armchair, by Victor Vasconcelos; MP97 armchairs, by Percival Lafer; among many others already mentioned.
Technology is also present in the establishment. Throughout the show, projectors bring live images of cracked earth, sounds of running rainwater, and children running through puddles, living in this atmosphere of purity and joy. The soundtrack also defines the aura of the sertão, with references to the region’s rezadeiras, accordions and other magical elements.
Finally, the central work of the space is called “Os Brasileiros”, by the artist Juraci Dórea. Sculptor, painter, draftsman, photographer, visual programmer, he worked in Feira de Santana and gradually made his work converge towards contemporary visual languages with peasant roots and traditions.
