DESIGNSIGH is proud to present Nathália Favaro, a very talented architect. She ventured in Buenos Aires to complement her training. After receiving her diploma, she worked with the designer Carlos Miele and decided to specialize in furniture design . Currently developing a beautiful working craft using ceramics, wool, and latex. While making a drawing course in the neighborhood of Pompeii, in São Paulo, by chance, she came across her future home.
“At the time I lived in Vila Mariana and made the drawing course of Carla Caffé SESC Pompeia, I was always in the neighborhood, at least once a week. In one of these weeks, I began to notice the buildings and saw a sign for sale themselves in one of them. The next day, I called the property and we arranged a visit, “she recalls. For the architect, the property of 93m² of the 60s, was very promising: “They had two apartments for sale with the same plant, but totally different – one was renovated and the other in the original plan was the one I chose Besides.. cheaper and calling for reform, it was on a higher floor, which let in more natural light.”
Time to decorate , Nathália bothered only to find the perfect sofa, which should occupy the space very well and be comfortable. “Gradually I was buying a little vase, a pad, etc. A lot I had, from the time I shared the apartment with friends in Pinheiros” she says. Indeed, it was in one of these mines she came face to face with her greatest find: the Paulistano chair by Paulo Mendes da Rocha, acquired in a promotion. Already the iron chest that lives in the entrance hall was purchased in an antique shop in Turiassú Street. Despite being the owner of an inventive soul, the architect does not see the need to move in décor often because it believes that this is a natural movement that takes place over time, in your personal changes. No wonder that her house became her sanctuary : “I always think of Bob Dylan song that says,” It’s not a house, it’s a home “and I think that from the moment you sit in your intimacy, at ease and comfortable with will to be, back or split, this is a home. ”
