Apartment S in Lisbon, Portugal by FORWARD Architecture & Interior Design

Friday, July 22nd, 2011

Article source: FORWARD Architecture & Interior Design

An apartment in downtown Lisbon, designed by FORWARD, aims at being a place of refuge for the young cosmopolitan couple who seeks peace and calm, forgetting the daily city buzz.

When we enter the house, we are surrounded by its sophisticated and relaxed environment, with light and comfortable areas, with clean elegant lines, marked by the reflexes of the mirrors that extend the vertical elements subdividing them, and by the lighting shapes that emphasize architectural details, setting directions and giving rhythm and some drama to the different sceneries planned for home living.

Serlachius Museum Gösta Extension Proposal by FRAMA Architects BDA

Serlachius Museum Gösta Extension Proposal by FRAMA Architects BDA

FRAMA Architects main objective was to reduce the impact of the volume on the delicate site and to intertwine the building with the beautiful environment. Through the “heart and wings” concept the large building mass of 4700sqm is scattered around a central heart. The new building is split up into a number of squares that form a dialectic relationship towards the site and the existing Museum building. These square like building wings are arranged in a circular manner to form the central space, “the Heart” of the new Museum Extension. Joenniemi Manor, the existing museum building, is a very particular one of these wings as the tallest and oldest, its sublime presence is still untouched and engages in an interesting dialogue with the new clustered building addition that is cautiously connected by a barely visible underground passageway.
