What began its life as a somewhat crowded and inflexible family home is now a spacious and attractive Apartment for One.
Architect Flavio Castro redesigned this São Paulo property for a young, single client working in advertising. He began by removing interior walls to create an airy open plan living arrangement, living and dining areas all to one side.
The kitchen is swathed in a spectrum of blue: the result is so bold and exciting there isn’t any need for knickknacks or extraneous ornamentation. The smooth lines of the cabinets and vintage refrigerator give this space a somewhat minimalistic vibe despite the bright color palette.
A concrete threshold helps to separate the social spaces from the private. An elegant media area occupies a space in between – not quite shielded from view, but definitely cozy enough for intimate gatherings.
