Suave Renovated Brazilian Pad Plays Up Concrete Modernism

Brazilian modernism loves its concrete, so in renovating an apartment in a 1964 building designed by leading Brazilian modernist Rino Levi, local firm Couto Arquitetura made sure to follow suit, using fair-faced concrete to break down the2,600-square-foot space. Concrete also resurfaces in the master bedroom, acting as a high-texture headboard-cum-accent-paneling. The other highlight? The open kitchen-living area with tons of built-in shelving and an extensive, perforated room divider, which actually serves as a neat parallel to what looks like an exterior screen along the apartment's glassy facade.
