Sao Paulo-based architectural practice, FC Studio, has designed the Maranhão Apartment project. The stylish and modern apartment is located in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

According to the architects: “The biggest challenge of this interior design project was the conversion of a family apartment compartmentalised into an apartment for a young single occupier.

“The meticulous work respected the memories impregnated in certain parts and introduced new elements from new intentions. The living room, TV room and kitchen have become part of a single space through the demolition of walls and removal of the toilet. Shelves specifically emphasize the horizontality of the space and serve as a shield for design pieces. A large gallery Corten steel is the element delimiter between social and intimate, camouflaging access that is provided by a pivoting door. The original structure was exposed and the materials are shown with sincerity. The concrete, glass and steel corten combine a sober colour palette and contrast with some pieces that give identity to the flexible space.”
