Welcome to our gallery featuring the contemporary, eclectic Night and Day project, a home designed by Sandro Clemes.
This home features a spectacular dining and kitchen area that spills into a private pub setting, perfect for bringing family and friends together. The designer brought together practicality and style, using nostalgic elements to create an aura of relaxation in a residence built for a young couple with two small children. The edícula, (a small house in Brazil; in this case, a room isolated from the main house) occupies an area of 80 square meters, distributed among 3 rooms: barbecue with gourmet kitchen, pub, and half-bath.
In the barbecue space, wood is the main material, complemented by natural rocks and metallic accessories. The sand colored porcelain tile floor, off-white walls, and the white ceiling serve as a permanent background for decorations with a discrete color palette. Here, the ambience reflects the cool of the day. The strong natural light entering the space is filtered by white sunscreens.
In contrast to the daytime relaxation vibe, the adjacent pub mixes English classicism and rustic Irish simplicity with Brazilian tranquility. The space is dedicated to music and beer tasting from around the world (the property owner is a lover, scholar, and producer of the beverage). The mood in this space is darker and warmer.
The layout of the pub was organized into two areas: the dining counter for 3 with crystal cabinet and refrigerator, and the tables with fixed bench and movable chairs, seating 8 people. Between the two sections, the circulation hallway is marked by a dartboard on the wall.
Creating a lucid atmosphere of affectations and memories, the walls of the pub are covered by exquisite beer labels from around the world, photographs, toy figures, personal souvenirs, illustrations, and vintage objects collected by the designer from antique fairs and second-hand stores.
In the half-bath, the all-white walls and 3D panel boards are interrupted by the photograph “The Tourist,” by Gabriel Vanini, an image that plays with the invasion of privacy in the contemporary world and reinforces the playfulness of the ambiance.
The massive kitchen island features seating space for 4 white-upholstered wooden bar stools. Pendant lights and wall art, along with vintage signs and bottles above the cabinetry, create detail in the upper spaces.
Geometric backsplash adds contrast and visual interest between thick slab countertop and floating minimalist cabinetry. A large marble wrapped fireplace stands mounted in the wall at left.
Turning to the side, we see the open-plan room encompassing a large dining room area, with large rich wood table at center.
Interesting details abound in the home, including this cage-frame floor lamp and carved wood hat rack and umbrella stand.
Similarly, next to the kitchen space stands this art-stamped folding chair and carved lion statue.
Spanning the length of the open-plan room is an immense full height window set. Translucent white sunscreens filter the natural light.
The massive wood dining table features a metal frame and fixed-bench seating. Above the windows we see many of the framed photographs that wrap this space.
Close look reveals the discreet metal framing holding the fixed benches together.
Moving into the adjacent space, we see the wood-look vinyl flooring beneath the pub room.
The pub room features a darker, more intimate ambiance, with sconces and dark painted walls creating atmosphere. Tables are set up like a proper pub.
The chocolate hued tables rest against bench seating, featuring a set of wildly different cushion upholstery in varying patterns.
The sconces, mirrors, and artwork adorning the walls help foster the comfortably busy atmosphere in this space.
Here we see some of the artwork, including photography, painting, and a framed album cover: Black Sabbath’s masterpiece, Paranoid.
The half-bath features “The Tourist” artwork, breaking up the calm atmosphere with a playfully invasive image.
