Bamo designs interiors of Four Seasons Hotel São Paulo

Bamo has completed its 12th project for Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts, the Four Seasons Hotel São Paulo at Nações Unidas. 

The property is housed within a 28-story tower designed by HKS in partnership with Aflalo e Gasperini Architects, with 16 floors occupied by the hotel and 12 floors for residential units. BAMO designed the hotel's interiors including the reception and lobby level, lobby bar and lounge, spa, pool, fitness center and 254 guestrooms and suites.

In the design of the property, principals Michael Booth and Anne Wilkinson took cues from Oscar Niemeyer's modernism and the organic abstraction of Burle Marx. 

Virtual Roundtable

Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience

Join Hotel Management’s Elaine Simon for our latest roundtable—Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience. The experts on the panel will share how to inspire guest confidence that hotels are safe and clean and how to win back guest business.

The reception desks, made of Brazilian marble, are located under a dome of glass orbs and trio of faceted brass.

Each guestroom has a unique slatted wall that separates the bath and bedroom. Finishes include Brazilian granite floors at the entry and bath, Jatoba wood throughout the bedroom, and a Brazilian leather rug in place of carpet. The color palette used includes black and white patterns, contrasting wood tones, satin brass accents, and a burst of marigold at the chaise.

The suite has an almost brutalist simplicity, clean and architectural yet luxurious. The space uses travertine throughout, with other elements including Brazilian burled wood, dark-stained ipe, and a light-toned plaster. There are also Brazilian furnishings from such designers as Jorge Zalszupin and Jader Almeida. The are also artwork and sculptures from Brazilian artists, including Karen de Picciotto, Jose Munhoz, Cassio Lazaro and Arnaldo Bataglini.

The spa uses deep-toned Brazilian green marble and natural ipe throughout. Intricate wood and metal screens control views and light, critical to the ambiance. The pool flows visually through a glass panel connecting interior and exterior, and culminates at a curved, slate and onyx feature wall.
