Alan Chu has designed Bloco A in Brasília, Brazil.

This project was the renovation of the interiors of a 1960s building located in the city of Brasília, Brazil's new capital designed by Lucio Costa.

At the time, Oscar Niemeyer was NOVACAP's project coordinator – an urban development company for the new capital of Brazil, responsible for the design of the buildings.

Bloco A gently balances the heritage of modern architecture with rustic and natural elements of the traditional Brazilian house, privileging the comfort of the interiors with the aim of creating a homely atmosphere.

This project has been longlisted in the apartment interior category of Dezeen Awards 2022.

Designer: Alan Chu
