In order to understand why would a Brazilian want to have a space themed around the British monarchy, you have to take into account this room was prepared for Casa Cor design event in Sao Paulo, which began around the much talked about William and Kate's royal wedding.
A 'copa' is a typology of space in some Brazilian homes that sits somewhere between a kitchen and a dinning room, where you have a small bite or drink with friends.
Faced with the challenge of projecting such a place at the Casa Cor Sao Paulo exhibition in only 107 sq. feet (10 sq. meters), the designers took inspiration in the English wedding for colors and textures.
The interesting part for TreeHugger and our love of small spaces, however, is the comfortable organization of a nicely equipped kitchen (electric oven on top, fridge below the counter, sink at the back of the room), a compact dinning area for two, and even a chilling space with cellar and sofa.
Some of the wooden structures were also constructed with demolition wood by the Bontempo Muebles store.
Possibly without the Kate and William photos, this space could make a great kitchen and dining area in any small apartment.
