Renovation project for a small apartment located in a traditional neighborhood in the federal capital of Brazil. The original plan was very segmented and dark. Disjointed rooms and very poor spatial quality. The project should follow a very simple and precise line and have a low cost.

We removed the dividing walls of the kitchen and laundry area, as well as the narrow living room and the first bedroom that was eliminated. The new kitchen would be completely integrated with the living room and dining room that extended along the old bedroom, allowing all these spaces to be lit and ventilated through the windows at both ends of the floor. Now the light comes in abundantly. The kitchen has a single counter that extends along peripheral walls covered in rough brick. The same brick covers part of the kitchen ceiling slab and upper beam. From the kitchen ceiling hangs a steel cable that supports a suspended oblong metal table – an homage to the traditional tables of Brazilian bars; so simple and popular.

The central pillar was exposed in an apparent design. The curves of the oblong table are repeated on the brick wall and also on the detail of the lighting niche located in the large luminous panel of the only white wall in the room. Vinyl flooring was applied in all rooms, bringing unity and a feeling of spaciousness. We kept the old bathroom, which received a rectangular white ceramic tile which modulated the internal niche that runs through the box and the basin carved in stone.
