Arroios Apartment Lisboa
Location: central Lisbon
Design: Tiago Filipe Santos
The apartment is part of a typical Lisbon old building. It’s long proportion produces a set of spaces on which the presence of natural light is the main challenge.
The apartment is refurbished having the courtyard/garden as a central area that is totally open to the living room and adjacent spaces. The courtyard is the main source of natural light for the apartment.
The continuity and flow between the common spaces of the apartment (living room, dining room and kitchen) is clearly felt by the absence of doors between these spaces. Transitions are felt by in-built furniture or by the memory of ancient doors.
The 3 bedrooms are redesigned and functionally more adequate to modern needs. The master bedroom becomes a suite with the private bathroom and the in-built closet
CLOSETS AND MULTIPLE STORAGE AREAS
Closets and unexpected areas of storage are in-built as a solution that optimizes space and takes close attention to every “dead” area in the apartment.
New windows area brought in to improve the acoustic and thermal conditions of the apartment.
In-built natural gas heating system improves the thermal efficiency of the apartment.
EXTERIOR NATURAL WOOD DECK
The exterior natural wood deck is the perfect place for long afternoons and late evenings with friends and family.
The remaining area of the courtyard is open to be used for a green lawn or blue pool.
