Stylish antique shop in São Paulo shows good things come in small packages
Kesley Caliguere Antique Shop was built in São Paulo, in a very narrow plot covering only 70 square
metres in leafy Jardins neighborhood.
The two stories of the building are distinctively marked from the outside by their colors – black or
white – looking just as containers placed one over the other.
At front, a wall-to-ceiling windowshop ends up in a curve where it meets the wood entry door. Inside,
gallery spaces were designed all-white and as neutral as possible so not to interfere with collection
items - mostly Brazilian furniture and artworks from the 1940s through the 1970s. Just the staircase,
naturally lit by a skylight, was color-painted in a bright yellow tone.
