The mezzanine bathroom tub's ceiling is meant to soften the rays of the sun. The wooden muxarabie material is a registered trademark of Torres'.
From this angle, you can see that the entrance houses a large courtyard. Subdued and simple furniture and an open layout enlarge the first level of the two-story home, which also houses a work studio for Torres.
Torres, who considers himself a citizen of the world and keeps several properties in Brazil and Europe, wanted to convey in his own new space a cosmopolitan life with hints of pop culture influences.
This neon light artwork is also by Pinky Wainer, creator of the neon installation at the entrance. In the foreground is a ceramic skull, often used as a symbol of mortality and melancholy — a deliberate addition to Torres' domestic space, where every piece of furniture has an aesthetic or functional purpose.
Every book in his collection also has an aesthetic purpose, and each one's inclusion has been contemplated and mulled over by the artist-architect.
Torres considers his home space his "cauldron of references," where he receives both friends and clients who share his love of tattoos, street art and electronic music; his home life is inevitably symbiotic with his structural and product designs.
