Apartment in São Paulo
Architect Alan Chu created this fun micro bachelor pad for a recently divorced client in São Paulo, Brazil. The space is quite small, only 36 sqm, distributed in two floors. In order to keep the clutter from spilling out, the massive storage unit was built against one of the walls of the apartment. It included dresser, pantry, media storage, kitchen cabinets, collectibles, – all in one piece. I love the crate-like boxes the unit is comprised of, they look very low key and unpretentious. Red accents play beautifully against the white walls and pinewood cabinetry. The spiral staircase leads to the second floor, where the bedroom suite is located. The color scheme there is dark and subdued, giving a more private feel to the room.
