MY HOUSE IDEA: Apartment RJ by RUA 141 + Zalc Arquitetura

The second home of a family from Acre, Apartamento RJ, with a project by Rua 141 Arquitetura + Rafael Zalc, has the premise of welcoming its residents when they are in the city. São Paulo, the 70m² property underwent a renovation that ensured new use of the spaces and the inclusion of furniture and objects that are co-protagonists of the project, valuing national design.

A bold atmosphere was created with sophisticated details. The room was integrated into the terrace to make the social area more spacious and the same cement floor was used to provide this uniformity. The linear kitchen is open to the living room, where a language was created that suited this space and conversed with the furniture. At the entrance of the apartment, the laundry room and the service area were allocated, which are hidden by the large wooden panels. In this way, it was possible to optimize uses and maintain the same language created for the social area. On the opposite wall of the wardrobe, a jigsaw puzzle was created on the panel covered with fabric, which continues on the TV wall. In this way, a cozy space was developed that contrasts with the cement tiled floor.
