Text description provided by the architects. The apartment is on the last floor of a 1922 building in Campo de Ourique. With generous dimensions and following the intrinsic characteristics of this type of building, it has a long corridor that distributes several rooms along it, ending in a generous balcony with a magnificent view over the Estrela district and several of Lisbon’s hills.
The acquisition of the existing attic over the apartment made it possible to enlarge this apartment and turn it into a duplex. The kitchen is repositioned close to the inner void, benefitting from the existing windows and infrastructures. This change allows the enlargement of the living room along the whole back façade and balcony, improving its light.
Double-height spaces punctuate the whole intervention, revealing the apparently fragile and complex roof structure. Skylights mark the space in search of the sky and views.
