Apartment 3 Zero 8 by Debaixo do Bloco Arquitetura



Apartment 3 Zero 8 is an apartment renovation designed by Debaixo do Bloco Arquitetura in 2019. Located in Brasília, Brazil, the apartment measures 1,184ft² (110m²).

An apartment within the model court ofBrasília (SQS 308) was the option of a couple with daughter for their future home. The choice could not be better for a family that appreciates the modernist architecture of the city. The standard configuration of the apartment with large windows and cobogos is two bedrooms, separate, service area, kitchen and living room, segregated. With this standard typology the initial proposal was the total demolition of the 110 m2 apartment to totally transform the layout into an environment that best suits the contemporary daily life.

Hallways and social areas, this including the kitchen, are no longer arranged separately and turns into one unit, as if it were a large loft. The integration of the areas improves communication between the family since even if the residents are doing different activities they can share the same space. Once the main rooms were facing the façades, now only the double, the daughter’s was located at the back of the building where natural light and ventilation come through a panel of coboos.

In order to separate the intimate area from the social area a wooden bookcase divides these two environments that receive the family’s book collection and affective items, blind doors are arranged between the niches to access the couple&’s bedroom suite, daughter&’s bedroom and the guest toilet.
