A lot of apartments, both old and new, seem to lack a certain understanding of basic layout requirements users have. Take this 50 square meter apartment in Sao Paulo for example. Apart from the fact that it’s pretty small, it also had a badly-planned interior where the bedroom which is the most private of spaces was positioned along the main facade which is facing the street while the social zone was situated on the other side of the floor plan.
1. The apartment’s new design focuses on creating a sense of openness and spaciousness without compromising privacy
2. The remodel included a few changes of layout and it was all done with minimal demolition
