Delineating living spaces is important for feeling like one has ample space to live in, but it can be difficult when one's apartment is small; Fala Atelier has attempted to solve that space problem in a petite Porto apartment. The apartment has deep blue panels that cover up various features, making it feel as though the occupant is in completely different spaces depending on whether they're open or closed.

Fala Atelier's panels cover the kitchen, wardrobe, and bathroom entrance of the small studio apartment. Similar panels also act as shutters for the windows, keeping light out of the living room cum bedroom space. By segmenting all these areas, the studio is more modular than it would be were they all left exposed.
