The delicate dove-gray hues and custom made pinewood furniture and fittings entwine in the breezy ambiance of this small space apartment (only 38sqm) in Sao Paulo, Brazil. The designers form Estudio BRA had kept the furnishing low and dynamically arranged so that the topography of the living premises floor plan breathes freely and allows the viewer to go unobstructed from one end of the premises to the panorama of the city visible through the vast windows. The main living premise alternates the light wood custom made structures, the pastel laminate cladding and inviting furniture pieces – the sofa and the loveseat all with expressive contemporary features.
The blue accent of the kitchen zone not only distinguishes this functional space from the open plan arrangement but also gives vital and fresh accent to the color selection. Bright and contemporarily shaped the small office corner present us with one fluid structure that goes from elegantly suspended deck (with fitting modern chair addition) to a loveseat structure comfortably inviting relaxation activates like reading. The dining corner looks like floating above the urban scenery and offers the best view of the design arrangement. Sliding panels reveal the bedroom space and add to the dynamic charm of the apartment. Mirror wall extends the premises and reflects the vast window urban scenery.
Clear lines, expressive shapes, light color selection and entwinement of contemporary and classic features give this apartment design a serine and inviting expression. The materials palette is also simple, functional and expressive – in addition to the clean feel of the wooden furniture and structures, the designers added a rich tile compositions- with dominating blue (kitchen) and green (bathroom) accents. The innovative and industrial materials like the high-strength laminate that coats the storage spaces, the sliding walls and the kitchen joinery texture are just a hint of the contemporary character of the apartments design.
