Sliding Doors and Multi-functional Wall Shape Tiny São Paulo Apartment

We always adore apartments and homes that maximize available space without compromising on aesthetics and practicality. This smart design is even more evident in ultra-small apartments where every inch of space matters twice as much! The Cazo Apartment in São Paulo is one such ingenious interior where Estúdio BRA used one of the walls to house all the décor, shelving and necessary storage units while the opposite wall is made up of a series of doors that slide open to reveal the bedroom and the bathroom. Despite having an area of just 38 square meters, this Brazilian apartment on the seventeenth floor of a skyscraper still feels cheerful and inviting.

Kitchen area of the apartment with bright blue cabinets

Custom wall-mounted storage units and cabinets in blue create the furniture wall and the living area is separated from the dining space and kitchen using a half wall and a large couch in gray. Natural pine finishes in the living room and the home office add warmth to the contemporary setting while the ultra-small kitchen also serves as the laundry area. With sliding panels revealing the light-filled bedroom and the efficient bathroom, switching between privacy and an open living environment is far too easy. [Photography: Maíra Acayaba]
