Apartment Amoreiras in Lisbon, Portugal by João Tiago Aguiar, arquitectos

The apartment is located on the 1st floor of a housing building with exclusive access to a big patio which corresponds to the roof of the garage placed on the ground-floor. We have come across an apartment very fragmented by thick structural walls. However, given the possibility of creating a close relation between the inside and the outside, it was chosen to place the living areas on the rear elevation, with access to the patio. For that effect, all the walls of the various rooms that made up the inner zone of the apartment were demolished and all those compartments were transformed in one single and large living-room with the kitchen at the end. The kitchen was treated as a loose volume, hidden by two folding doors which allow a more fluid circulation around that volume which in turn hides the subsequent laundry area.

The openings communicating with the patio were all transformed into French windows, linking the living-room with the outdoor space, thereby doubling the social area and functioning as an extension of the living-room to the outside. The steel beams of the structural reinforcement were chosen to be assumed and left at sight as a witness of an ambitious demolition work, providing an industrial look and feel. By the entrance a huge hall was designed, all in white, which distributes to the bedrooms and social areas and which is all illuminated by a light box. The private areas of the apartment were placed by the front façade and are composed by a suite and two bedrooms with the possibility of dividing in two one of the bedrooms in the future.

The walls and countertops of the suite’s bathroom were coated in white marble stone, with the washbasins carved in it. The guest toilet was totally coated in black marquina marble, blurring thereby its boundaries. All the doors of the pantry placed behind this guest toilet were totally coated in mirror glass hiding thereby that storeroom and giving the sense of duplicating the space.
