To have an uninterrupted view of the iconic Sugar Loaf Mountain from their lounge is a dream for many but recently in Brazilian architect Chico Gouveia created just that, at the foot of the mountain! Pao de Acucar, as Cariocas call it, was just one of the unique settings for the project "The House as a postcard" organised by Brazilian newspaper OGlobo.
Chico designed and created a living room to a backdrop of the mountain. The idea was to put together a contemporary room, which would both sympathise and contrast with the view. " I grew up in Rio and was always in love with the city," says Chico " I chose Sugar Loaf Mountain as the view for my living room because its such an important reference...this beautiful natural monument inspired me to create a room where people would like to read and be in contact with art”.
He specifically concentrated on designs that reflect the naturalistic aspect of the city and country using pieces from both Brazilian designers and others. One of the principal pieces is by Polish artist Frans Krajeberg and uses wood rescued from the illegal burning of forests in Brazil.
“ I designed the living room as if it was for me, it’s contemporary, Brazilian, sophisticated…if the sun wasn’t so strong I could relax here right now” joked the architect.
Chico’s room is one of four being created at specific landmarks across the city of Rio.
