In the following year, in 1927, Warchavchik would marry Mina Klabin (1896– 1969), who came from a wealthy family of industrialists from São Paulo. The marriage granted him access to the local elite circles, as well as it provided him with conditions to accomplish his architectural experiments by building himself and his family a house. His own house, finished in 1928 in the distant district of Vila Mariana (where the Klabin owned large stretches of land), was the first expression of modern architecture conveying the architect’s proselytism.
