Apartamento Sergipe by Felipe Hess

The Brazilian architecture firm of Felipe Hess has designed this bright and spacious apartment located in a 1960’s modernist building in São Paulo for its owner, a young actor who lives alone. With the brief calling for a spacious, open and clean-cut space, the designers decided to tear down almost every wall and unify all social areas. One of its unique features is a 10-meter-long table that runs along one side of the loft-like space, serving different purposes at different points (functioning as a cooking table and office desk with inlaid power plugs and dining table). The apartment’s private areas, comprising a master bedroom with bathroom and closet and a small toilet for visitors, are separated by a large white wall. Reflecting the owner’s occupation, a special area has been created opposite the kitchen for rehearsing plays, simply furnished with a few chairs and amply lit with natural light.

Another feature of the apartment is its main entrance which has been placed inside a cube construction, that is completely covered in bright yellow tiles from floor to ceiling. In order to create a seamless surface of tiles, the designers decided not to use a door handle; instead, you open the door in true 1960′s James Bond style by entering a PIN on a number-pad hidden behind one of the tiles. As the entrance cube is covered with shelves from the outside, an illusion is created – as upon entering, it seems like you are coming out of a magic door through the bookcase.
