From the architect. The project consisted in the transformation of an old office into an apartment. Situated on the top floor of a building in Avenida Rodrigo da Fonseca, the original space, with no interest, had very little light, punctuated only by small openings at the top of the walls.

The entire interior was demolished, leaving only the structural elements.Small cracks gave way to large windows, open up to the level of the deck that was created outboard and as a large balcony surrounds the apartment.

The space is fluid and less compartmentalized. A plan of bicolour cabinets animates the scene and creates the separation between sleeping and living areas.
