What does a man, and a recently divorced one, need in his home? I will tell you; a cosy and pleasant apartment with minimal decoration, so he doesn't have to clean lot of things, a comfortable sofa/bed with a nice plasma tv to watch football, a modern fridge full of beers and a quite bedroom for naughty nights. You can actually find all the above in this 36sqm São Paulo micro apartment by Brazilian architect Alan Chu.
A neutral colour palette of white, grey and black is combined with wooden surfaces. Alan Chu took advantage of the wall next to the entrance creating a storage unit, including an open kitchen with its appliances and an entertainment system. All the pinewood crate-like boxes have a red finish inside; the only colour touch in this apartment along with the reddish carpet, the scarlet Smeg fridge and the hanging vintage telephone. A black metal staircase spirals up to the mezzanine through another wooden box leading to the black-coloured bedroom area.
This week I'm obsessed with small apartments as you can see from my posts. Check also a mini loft-styled apartment in Poland.
