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.

House in Melides, Grândola, Portugal by Pedro Reis Arquitecto

Thursday, July 7th, 2011

Article source: Pedro Reis

The house in Melides, on the southern Alentejo Coast, by Pedro Reis, represents the desire for a holiday house as a getaway from the bustle of a big city. The client made the unusual decision to have an architectural competition between three distinct ateliers, allowing a choice from a wider range of possible solutions. This winning proposal presents a reading of the “drama” of the natural countryside, building it on top of a steep hill relatively protected by the surrounding “rugged topography”.

Article source: Pedra Silva Arquitectos

The intervention in the Palma Apartments’ main premise, was the total restructuring of the existing space to create a new proposal for a more real, more fluid and, above all, more livable space for our clients. The apartment was based on a common typology of the 80’s, where the spatial arrangement was based on partitioning the space. The original entrance opened into an entrance hall, this hall was followed by separate distribution areas, for social, intimate and service spaces. From this central distribution space, the various domestic activities were divided separately.

It can be concisely summarized the project to a gesture.

The respect for the site, not in the sense of the landscape, but of the habits and attitudes inherent in the “feel “of the place become evident when inserting the building in an area where are cultivated the principles of identity of the surrounding environment and a strong sense of preservation.
