With an initial approach of adding value to this unique space, the atelier Rita Valadão – Arquitetura & Design de Interiores sought to organise and adapt the apartment to its owners lifestyle and particular needs.
The starting point was to make the most use of its floor to ceiling features throughout the whole apartment. Without compromising the apartment’s intrinsic history nor a puristic revival approach, a permanent tribute was made to its orthogonal lines, creating tall consecutive frames that match the wall’s colour, accentuating its floor to ceiling features with doors made of a singular walnut plane. The entrance hall takes us by surprise, with grey tones of fluid form that organise living, reading and dining areas, punctuated with pastel tones.
