Located in Arapiraca Street, Vila Madalena, São Paulo - SP, the Arapiraca Building is a residential complex of mixed use that has several types of apartments. The building was built in 2016 and its architectonic concept appreciated the integration of the building with the surroundings, a neighborhood of old residences with several bars and restaurants.
Its design is marked by the apparent randomness of blocks and fenestrations, which provide differentiated views for housing units and allow greater use of ventilation and natural lighting. The lining of the walls seeks to re-read typical features of the neighborhood, such as blasted concrete and ceramics.
Standing out among the complex, vegetation plays a fundamental role in sensory experimentation of the building, humanizing its spaces and bringing a tropical climate to architecture, characteristic of Triptyque designs.
Taught by the professional responsible for creating this project, Grégory Bousquet, this course shares the creative process of the Triptyque Architecture office. Through sketches, perspectives, technical drawings, diagrams, and photographs will be approached themes such as concept, architectural concept, materials, structure, lighting, interiors, and visual identity.
Founding partner of Triptyque Architecture, Grégory Bousquet holds a degree in architecture from École d'Architecture Paris-La Seine (1998). He also has a DEA of Philosophy by Paris-La Sorbonne (1999) and DEA of Theory in Architecture by Paris-Villemin (1999).
