The Cinderela Loft in Sao Paolo was designed by Brazilian architect João Artacho Jurado in 1956. The building is located on Rua Maranhão in Higienópolis. The caretaker’s apartment was for sale, 70m2 of ground floor apartment divided into living room, a pair of small bedrooms, bathroom and kitchen with just 2 windows.
Marina Acayaba and Juan Pablo Rosenberg, founder of AR Arquitetos, turned the apartment into a charming eclectic, contemporary loft with rooms bathed in natural light. They managed to enlarge the kitchen window into a wall of glass and a skylight over the court yard of the building.
During the first inspection of the apartment, Juan Pablo Rosenberg looked up from the front door that opens into the lobby of the building and noticed a 4 meter difference in heights. At that moment he knew he had to purchase and renovate the apartment.
