This elegant 517 square foot apartment is located in Sao Paulo, Brazil and it was remodeled by Mauricio Arruda Arquitetos & Designers in 2011. It’s known as Residencia Alameda Campinas and it’s a perfect example of how you can make the most out of the space available. The apartment features a very beautifully balanced combination of modern elements and patterns plays a very important role in each room.
As you can see, area rugs and carpets are present in all the rooms. They make the space feel more inviting and warm and they complement the classic black and white combination beautifully. One of the most impressive and striking elements is the spiral staircase which is the focal point of the living room. The combination of black and white gives it style and allows it to blend it as well as to stand out.
Although the apartment only measures 48 square meters, it doesn’t seem small. It’s spacious and inviting, mainly thanks to the color palette and style chosen for the interior. As part of the remodel, the architects changed everything from layout to finishing touches. The goal was to unify the two floors of the duplex and to create a smooth transition between the spaces.
The color and material palette is limited but this contributes to the overall cohesive and simple décor that allows the apartment to feel airy and inviting. As you can see, the usual combo of white walls and wooden floors was somewhat reverted in this case. The flooring is white while the walls feature a warm and neutral shade. They gray and brown coexist here beautifully without making the apartment feel too masculine.
