São Paulo, 2020 – The 74m2 apartment in Vila Olímpia (São Paulo, Brazil) received a reform that didn´t pleased the couple who had invested in the space. With this challenge, the apartament gained a new project signed by the architecture office As Arquitetas SP, led by the architects Luciana Gomes and Michelle Waisblut, who had the challenge of giving new solutions to furnitures that would remain in the apartment, such as sofas, countertops and kitchen cabinets, and make all changes without any disorder and in short time (the construction was did in 3 months). The proposal also sought to bring more coziness, optimization to the areas and to appropriate the couple works of art, passionated by graffiti.

For this, the terrace needed to be more inviting (in addition to finding a solution for the TV that was hung with the apparent cables); the room gained a new color - green came out and white came in - and the toilet is no longer a deposit of the previous construction. The suite also changed: it was too tight and with few closets to meet the couple's demand. Therefore, the intervention began on the terrace, which received a sofa in “U” format to accommodate a larger number of people and the TV was hidden in a motorized box embedded in the lining. The brick wall was painted white to give a highlight to the neon (an old wish of the couple) and the bar was designed with folding doors to remain open on festive days.
