Vasco Lima Mayer: Despite having a typical Lisbon design, with high ceilings and wide corridors, this project always had the objective of making a comfortable home within the parameters of contemporaneity.
Creating a parallel between the past and the present, part of its original structure was maintained, and some walls were recovered in order to preserve the original textures. The trimmings on the doors, shutters and wooden flooring were also maintained. All these elements create a narrative that lives in the space itself, making it a long story to tell. It is, without a doubt, an apartment with character and “life of its own”.
This project required an immense and subtle attention to the details. The choice of materials, pieces of furniture and works of art was made carefully.
This apartment in the margins of Tejo river, has seen its spirit renewed, becoming a colorful and cheerful space, like a mirror of what is the true soul of Lisbon capital.
