Our architects were hired to design an apartment renovation in the centre of Oporto with a very low budget. Our proposal consisted in a complete painting of walls, doors, rims and baseboards, roof and furniture in absolute white. Therefore, we transformed a series of small and dark spaces into a series of big and bright spaces. The furniture is placed and designed in such way that one cannot recognize the irregularities of the old construction. Yes, from the limitations of the old building the modernity of a renovation can also be born.
The Interior architecture project of the apartment
In this project we chose to enhance the classicism of the skirting boards and rims filled with friezes. But we made the entire environment more sophisticated by painting all these carpentry white. The solid oak wood flooring becomes more valuable in the white interior. We took special care with light, applying indirect light whenever possible, making spaces larger and more welcoming. We use some of our furniture pieces here. In short, white and wood contrast and reinforce each other.
