New Micro Apartment in São Paulo by LifeEdited

LifeEdited is excited to reveal more details about our upcoming VN Quatá project in São Paulo, Brazil. Working in partnership with VITACON (the developer) and Basiches Arquitetos Associados (the architect of record), we designed the interiors for the apartments, which are 173 sq ft/16 sq meters. The apartments also have a 75 sq ft/7 sq meter balcony.

Despite their compact proportions, units will be packed with features. Transforming elements such as hidden beds with sofas, seating for five at tables that go from coffee to dining heights and kitchen counters that moonlight as workstations and entertainment centers give the apartments the functionality of much larger spaces. To add a personal touch, the panel on the wall beds will have custom artwork specified by residents (see all example images below). The building will also feature hotel-like services like daily cleaning, laundry service, a gym, lounge, pool, cafe and more.

VN Quatá are more than tiny, tricked out spaces. They fit into a new ecosystem of living where access to amenities and proximity to work is valued over large, personal spaces. They represent a less car-centric existence than the one that characterizes life in São Paulo today, many of whose residents commute over three hours a day to work. At VN Quatá, residents can bike or walk to work or use one of São Paulo’s car or bike sharing programs for the times when they’re needed.

Project completion is expected for Q1 2016. For VN Quatá purchasing information, contact VITACON.
