In a city of nearly 12 million residents, living spaces in São Paulo can get pretty tight, leaving little room for any ambitious home design improvements. However, local architect Alan Chu didn’t let the limitations of a micro-apartment in the metropolis prevent him from getting creative. Utilizing an open floor plan with the living room and kitchen, he allowed the area to feel larger and less confined. Additionally, a multitude of storage compartments that hide into the wall seamlessly integrate the kitchen counters with the entertainment center. While most of the apartment embraces a beige, neutral tone, a dramatic spiral staircase commands the attention of the entire spot. The efficient inlet connects the main floor to a mezzanine level bedroom without compromising floor space, while adding a bit of artfulness to the minimal unit. Complemented by neon signs, simple fixtures and red accents for a contemporary feel, take a look at the photos above for a closer look.
