Small Brazil Apartment Got Rid Of All Inner Walls And Looks Amazing

When asked to redesign the entire interior of a 45 square meter apartment in Brazil, studio Renato Mendonça Arquitetura made sure to turn this space into a dream home for its owner. The main goal was to create a design that reflects the apartment owner’s personality so it had to be a bachelor pad with a sophisticated and modern appeal.

The most challenging part was being able to create a visually large but still private environment. In order to achieve that, the architects removed all the inner walls of this small apartment. That greatly opened up the entire space, allowing natural light to travel through the different rooms and blurring the boundaries between the different sections.

Of course, we still have different zones with different purposes. They’re separated not by walls but by furniture, carpets, decorations and pillars. The rooms flow into one another seamlessly and this creates a very pleasant and homely ambiance throughout the apartment. Furthermore, the kitchen was extended, being integrated with the balcony and creating more usable space as a result of removing the doors that separated these two spaces. There’s concrete flooring all throughout the apartment and various other unfinished and raw surfaces scattered around. This gives the rooms character and looks beautiful in combination with all the accent colors. Speaking of which, the owner wanted to focus on the primary colors in the pure form and as you can see there are some colorful design details that really pop out.
