This Sao Paulo apartment is a fresh reminder about how successful simplicity can be. No frills necessary, just thoughtful design. Architect Alan Chu chose to use ceramic ventilation bricks (cobogó) as building blocks for walls and furniture in this home – the idea came out of budgetary necessity but on top of that it pays homage to modernist Brazilian architecture. It’s always cool to change the context of a widely used building material.
(It almost looks like wallpaper if you squint your eyes!)
