Modern Apartment With A Green Wall And A Minimalist Interior

The talented team at studio flipê arquitetura have recently completed a great project in Sao Paulo, Brazil. They worked on a modern 100 square meter apartment and they managed to give it lots of character without making it seem too cluttered. The apartment is organized into two main areas. The ground floor is dedicated to all the social activities and is composed of the already classic kitchen – dining room – living area combo. In addition to that, there’s also a balcony which can be accessed from any of these sections. The upstairs area is where the private rooms are situated.

There’s a very dynamic vibe all throughout the apartment and it’s not related to color. In fact, the chromatic palette employed here is mostly based on neutrals such as black and white with certain wooden accents and of course the grey of all the exposed concrete surfaces. The white kitchen appliances blend in with all the modern cabinets, creating a sense continuity. At the same time, the kitchen island is seamlessly integrated with the dining table. What’s really beautiful though is the green wall which is the focal point of the balcony and by extension of the entire social area. We should also note that metal details have been integrated into the design in a very natural manner. A great example is the bookcase.
