ESQVTA has completed yet another residential renovation of an apartment within a historic building in Lisbon, Portugal. The project is part of a larger housing complex of luxurious flats, which are available to the public for short-term rental.
The apartment is part of a 19th century building with large rooms and generous ceiling heights. ESQVTA‘s signature is apparent in the refurbished interior, while most furniture, lighting fixtures and other objects are handmade by local craftsmen. The decoration includes works of art by Alexandre Conefrey, Hugo Amorim, Thierry Simões or Elisa Pône. Lead architect has invited architecture firm Yamagata Arquitetura to work in partnership in the renovation, in order to achieve a unique, distinct interior design. The character of the living environment integrates Japanese references, along with a variety of striking color tones, within a minimalist, functional space that also features elements of classic design, like the ‘akari’ lamps by Isamu Noguchi.
The color scheme used in decor was mostly neutral, with touches of pastel green and gold to make it bolder and catchier. The kitchen is perhaps the heart of the apartment and is the boldest space here: it’s done with pink walls, white cabients and a white marble backsplash and red touches here and there make it cooler and brighter. The only neutral space is the bedroom that is meant to be very relaxing, so here you won’t see anything colorful. Take a look at this unusual dwelling and get inspired!
