Leite Vasconcelos is a minimal apartment located in Lisbon, Portugal, designed by Spacegram. The studio was commissioned to refurbish a flat of 60 sqm located in Santa Apolónia, Lisbon, for a short rental apartment. The design intent is based on the idea of mass subtraction to generate the different spaces along with the apartment. At each space transition, a step is taken upward with the idea that the further up one goes, the more intimate, dark, and cozy it becomes. To emphasize the transitions, the material choice creates this division between the living area and the bedroom area, making a gradient from alabaster limestone stucco to two tones of sand of the same material. Given the small footprint, the main goal was to achieve maximum space efficiency, so there are no circulation spaces. To get the most daylight in all the doors are in glass, so the most inner spaces get light as well.
