The Vila Olimpia Apartment in São Paulo, Brazil, designed by FC Studio is a two bedroom apartment that does exactly that. It manages to squeeze the living room, TV room, dining room, kitchen, laundry, balcony and office into a single space. On top of that furniture like benches and tables are hybrid and mobile creating a flexible area. Even pieces of art can be moved around. The space adapts to the different possible scenarios where working, eating, cooking, washing clothes, etc. can all happen in a fluid way.
The roller blinds are featured in two shades. The first and most prominent are the black blockout roller blinds leading out to the balcony. They provide privacy from the city outside as well as playing the functional role of temperature control. To the right, a small narrow window is covered with a full length white roller blind. Again the black blockout roller blinds and white roller blinds are a functional choice. While black reduces light, white enhances it. The white roller blind provides privacy but brings in much needed natural light into the small space.
