Rather frequently, large working spaces are organized as labyrinthine corridors. They are conceived either as open plans without properly identified areas or as consecutive private rooms that hardly foster communication. Every day, we spend large amounts of energy walking from A to B and back to A, feeling disoriented and sending e-mails to a person sitting just ten meters away from us.
In 2016, LATITUDE was commissioned to design a workspace of 1,100 square meters for the law department of Hopson Development Holdings, a renowned Chinese corporation. Trusting us with such an important endeavor, we approached the complex issue from the user’s point of view.

Elegance is harmony, similar to beauty. Simply, beauty is a gift from God, but elegance is an ideal result of art; elegance was born in the process of cultural cultivation, and grown in it as well.”

This project involves the transformation of a Georgian three-storey terraced house near Dublin’s Docklands from three bed-sits into one light-filled ‘upside-down’ house with a new black tower in the garden.
The original Georgian property comprised three floors of accommodation, which had been converted into separate studio bed-sits on each floor. Most of the original decorative plasterwork and joinery features of the home had been lost, with the exception of the main hallway and staircase, which were reasonably intact.

This project refers to the redesigning of a T1 apartment (46 m2), located in attic flat of a 70’s building, situated in a privileged area of Sever do Vouga.
The social room of the building was firstly East facing while the cosy area was West facing. The main goal of the reconstruction was to change both social and cosy areas to the opposite side, allowing a better sun exposure which also made it possible to use the contiguous balcony.
It was also created a box inside the apartment, cleary distiguished with the usage of another colour, where other facilities, such as toilet, kitchen and machines, were placed.

The “Apartment E&E is not just your usual rehabilitation of a classic Viennese apartment in an old building but also a statement for sustainability in interior design.
The central theme was to unite the client’s quite strong stance on anti-consumerism with high aesthetic demands for a sound overall concept.

Imagined as a gallery for the client’s artwork and lifestyle – colorful and social.
The apartment, in a building that was originally a factory, looked like a regular old rental when we started: home depot finishes, awkward walls, a tiny master bath and a powder room. My clients brightened it up with their colorful art collection, and I wanted to design a home for them that would inspire and freshen their palate and complement the artwork for their frequent home parties.

The renovation of this bright apartment located in the Prati district of Rome represents a perfect blend between the customer needs and the design intentions: in fact, even though it is 80 square meters, it was designed by favoring a displacement of the spaces in favor of a large openspace, environment most lived by homeowners, and reducing to the maximum, but always in line with urban parameters, the sleeping area and the bathrooms. Contextual to a wide architectural requirement, there was a desire to separate the kitchen environment from the living room through a glazed system divided by a regular square mesh grille and with a very industrial aspect: it was made into galvanized iron profiles with micaceous finishing and artisanally assembled on site and completed with stratified glazing. The mood of the apartment prefers the total white combined with the warm tones of the oak parquet floor. On the theme of the grid also plays the espalier of the bedroom: in drawing the wall there are dense parallel wooden profiles that have also the function as shelves that can be placed at various heights. To exalt the pure formal minimalism, there are wall-wire wardrobes and a very linear and rigorous technical lighting.
