For the newly wed, life can change at a blistering pace and adapting to this whole new world is much easier when you have a home that feels comfortable and is perfectly functional. Living together post marriage is totally different to doing so before getting wed and a smart penthouse like the gorgeous Jazz Apartment in Sao Paulo, Brazil makes the transition that much simpler! Designed by BAZ Arquitetura to meet the specific needs of the young couple moving into it, the 526-square-meter home feels sophisticated, elegant and yet makes most of the available space. Created by Bia Prado with a mix of marble and wood, the penthouse stands out from the crowd.
It is only books and few of the décor additions like the plush purple couch that usher color into a setting that is otherwise largely neutral. With marble overtones and warmth of wood, one sees the perfect balance between sophistication and coziness – a blend that will hold the home in good stead for years to come. Swiveling wooden doors separate the dining area from the living space and just opening them up can create a spacious and fun social zone where the couple can host friends and family with ease.
Even more amazing is the pool and barbecue area outside that matches the style of the apartment and also offers stunning views of the cityscape. The outdoor space is elegantly sheltered and is a place that guests can enjoy both during the day and after sunset. A truly brilliant contemporary penthouse that feels ever so gorgeous!
