Cooking is very much the focus in this villa in São Paulo. And that is why architect João Armentano incorporated not one but two kitchens by LEICHT.
This dwelling with its two building complexes is situated on a wooded plot of land in São Paulo. It is both sophisticated and representative, and features integrated spa areas, a home cinema and a gourmet kitchen. The dishes prepared in the two kitchens by LEICHT are truly first class.
The main kitchen by LEICHT features a striking central island which at its ends can be used as a bar.
The inhabitants enjoy the calm surroundings, with numerous old trees, on three floors, but particularly when they are outside in the spacious free areas and at the pool. The striking, protruding flat roof provides shade and protects the residents from the rain. This is a major advantage in an area with constant temperatures that has just as much rain as it does sun.

Eating together in elegant surroundings is very much a focus of daily life. This was something the architect could fully appreciate and thus implement in his planning, as he too is of the opinion that the kitchen is the centre of the house. The building is in fact home to two kitchens by LEICHT: a main kitchen with a striking central island which at its ends can be used as a bar, as well as a gourmet kitchen with a “hot table”(teppanyaki).
