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

Friday, July 6th, 2018

Article source: 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.

Second Home Offices in Lisbon, Portugal by Selgascano Arquitectos

Wednesday, April 18th, 2018

Article source: Selgascano Arquitectos 

This is the first project built for Secondhome outside London. It is located in an “L” shape wing of the Lisboa Mercado da Ribeira, a popular landmark built in 1882. The only real idea behind this project is to preserve the character and main features of this space while adapting it to a workspace. The building character is defined by a large open space flaked by column shaped iron windows and beautiful iron-cast trusses in the roof. We preserved all of them and kept the inherited idea of one single open space, making small companies to share a huge table (70×10 meters) divided in three, encouraging the relationship and communication between them. The curved cuts in the table give members their own private area to focus on their work while keeping a sense of community.

Apartment Palatina I in Lisbon, Portugal by

Wednesday, March 14th, 2018

Article source: 

Palatina is a small palace built in the centre of Lisbon in the mid-20th century according to plans designed by Architect Carlos Rebelo de Andrade in the Português Suave style. Originally conceived to serve the purpose of a single family residence, the building was converted into four distinct apartments earlier this century. Apartment Palatina I occupies the main first floor of this mansion, the former location of the social areas – hall, office, billiards room, small living room, drawing room, pantry, dining hall, greenhouse – and correspondingly draws upon the magnificent ostentatiousness of both its amplitude and its materials and decorative details.
