An Apartment for a Design-Loving Couple in Brazil
View Slideshow

Architect Leandro Garcia designed the Perdizes Apartment for a young couple who have an affinity for both architecture and design. The modest 65 square meter (700 square foot) apartment is carefully laid out to make the most of its space. Located in the city of São Paulo, Brazil, the interior is light and bright, helped by the windows from the terrace.

The kitchen was merged with the living room to provide a more open space, which allowed for a dining room table.

Details were kept simple as not to overwhelm the interior.

The good-sized terrace was incorporated into the living area, adding more seating and square footage. The terrace walls provide extra storage, like a niche for a plant and a space for the refrigerator in the kitchen on the other side.
