This Brazilian Apartment Features an Open-Concept Layout

David Guerra was tasked with designing the interior of a Brazilian apartment at this year's Casa Cor Minas 2014 exhibition.

The compact apartment being completely empty, Guerra was free to design whatever his heart desired (space permitting). The layout makes use of the available space, encouraging fluidity and circulation throughout. The dining, living, kitchen and bedroom areas are, in effect, a single space that can be opened or closed off thanks to a system of sliding doors, as well as a leather-coated wall that conceals the closet and bathroom.

Taking advantage of the integrated single-room space, the architect opted for a suspended television that rotates to face all directions. Similarly, the wooden furniture that acts as a divider between spaces was specifically designed for simultaneous uses, whether it be for dining, entertainment or work.
