The refurbishment of two apartments from the 1950’s in Benfica, Lisbon, aimed to be restore with a contemporary design.

The goal was to optimize the living areas and adding a second bathroom for a suite. The apartments were designed to suit different needs and ways of living. One was transformed into a 2-bedroom apartment and the other in a 3-bedroom apartment.

The common areas were design in close relationship with each other promoting a connection between the living ares and the kitchen. The relation with the exterior was also enhanced with the discovery of new visual lines through the houses.
