São Bento Apartment

Interiors | 17 Nov 2016



Located in São Bento neighborhood, in the bright Portuguese capital, this is a rehabilitation project that combines the traditional Lisbon’s construction with a contemporary aesthetics. To meet the objectives of the project and improve the characteristics of space, the architects re-organized the apartment plan and inverted its logic of occupation. Thus, "the interior room was transformed into an open kitchen in constant contact with the living room and the old kitchen became the bedroom". The decor of the apartment, characterized by neutral and light colours, reflects the architecture of space and "combines classic decorative elements with pieces of furniture with contemporary lines or mid-century."
This project has the signature of Margarida Matias, from Arkstudio, in partnership with Architect Your Home.
