The House of DJ Pil Marques in Brazil by Guilherme Torres
When Brazilian architect Guilherme Torres and his colleagues were asked to decorate the house of Brazilian DJ and collector Pil Marques in São Paulo, Brazil, they initially thought it would be easy to help him organize his various collections and adapt the apartment to the likes and taste of his flat mates, artist Daniel Zanardi and DJ Adriana Recchi. But what started as a routine task ended up as an unpredictable adventure where the collection took the reins and demanded all the energy and attention of Studio Guilherme Torres.
Guilherme approached the owner’s hundreds of vintage toys, vinyl records and art pieces as a curator would do, through trying to find the ideal furniture that would house the toys and taking care of the smallest detail. The whole process, as he points out, came to a climax that lasted four days, involving the whole team of architects, painters and electricians working until the wee hours in order to deliver what Guilherme considers to be one of his masterpieces.
