Designed by Oscar Niemeyer’s office with the supervision of the designer himself, it holds 1 160 individual apartments, and today we’ll give attention to one particular industrial apartment on the 11th floor.

Unnecessary structural walls were demolished, giving the new interior a more open and airy feeling, and the original concrete walls were thoughtfully restored with exposed steel pipes and rough finishes bringing to the apartment a modern industrial vibe. “The challenge was to create spans in the project since the existing structure did not allow to transform the apartment into a loft,” explained the studio. “The solution was to open as much as possible the structural walls. The circulation gained fluidity and increased cross ventilation that enters both sides of the building.”

Each of the three spaces created by the structural changes has a different function. A television room is near the entrance, while a combined kitchen, dining and living area is in the centre, and the bedrooms and bathrooms are at the farthest end.

Lighting in galvanised steel tubes is present on the ceiling and the walls – one many of industrial style finishes in the apartment. Metallic cabinets display pops of intense orange – a creative statement detail – and colourful wall art, accessories and multi-colored kitchen shelves bring brightness to the apartment where the backdrop is deliberately kept as neutral as possible.

“The industrial language is reinforced in the interiors, on the customer-mounted shelf in a steel frame and in the kitchen, with steel cabinets,” concluded the architects. Along with the industrial elements, it’s also noticeable some vintage decor, like an adorable black antique telephone on a wall.
