Petroleum Apartment by Diego Revollo

February 22, 2017

Petroleum Apartment- Welcome to the 90m2 apartment in a traditional São Paulo neighborhood that was completely renovated to better adapt the new owner: a single young man, business administrator, art and photography enthusiast.

“The references he provided me did not show rooms or furniture at all. Instead, his own aesthetic universe. His love for the sea, the blue, the green, the petroleum blue” explains Diego Revollo.

Everything in the apartment became very practical and comfortable after the radical renovation, according to the resident himself. There was nothing left of the original configuration, quite compartmentalized, that should, necessarily, be maintained.

Diego Revollo emphasized the integration of spaces and reduced the numbers of compartments, eliminated one of the bedrooms to expand the living room and opened the kitchen completely, without any doors. Thus expanded with the elimination of one of the bedrooms, the original living room grew, becoming one large integrated space. The former restroom incorporated part of the maid’s dormitory while the rest opened up space for the creation of a small home office.

With walls and ceiling coated in light gray, honey colored wood flooring and part of the carpentry done in the same tone a sophisticated base to the decoration was created. However, what stands out in this apartment is the emphasis given to the petroleum blue color.

Another high point of the project is the carpentry, which becomes even more evident in the wet areas. Diego Revollo abandoned the traditional bathroom layout: besides the wooden floor, he provided the rooms with sinks positioned over dressers, with a slight retro look, resembling furniture, making the whole set much more harmonious.
