Palatina I apartment occupies the second floor of a small 20th century building designed by architect Carlos Rebelo de Andrade in the Português Suave style, which has been divided into four different apartments by rar.studio

The building, originally designed to be a single-family residence, is being transformed into four distinct apartments. The second floor is the one we are going to analyze, the apartment that once housed all the social areas, such as the entrance hall, the living room, the dining room, the greenhouse and the kitchen

It is precisely for these reasons that the floor flaunts grandeur and richness in both materials and decorative details. The works on the apartment are limited and occasional, with the aim of making the space more habitable while preserving the spatial structure and the original finishing materials

The greenhouse is transformed into an outdoor space, facilitating the entry of natural light into the eastern part of the apartment. The beautiful 19th century tile panel is illuminated as a result. The kitchen and bathrooms have been integrated with new equipment
