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 to several rooms along it, ending in a generous balcony with a magnificent view over Estrela district and several of Lisbon’s hills.
The acquisition of the existing attic over the apartment made 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 for the sky and views.
