REHABILITATION . BUILT . BAIRRO DAS COLÓNIAS . LISBON . PORTUGAL . 2016 . PHOTOGRAPHY: JOÃO MORGADO
Rehabilitating this 20’s Art Deco flat in Bairro das Colónias, Lisbon, is rehabilitating its memory. The aim was a sensitive, delicate, detailed and noble intervention, that might give back the spaces their original functionality and contemporaneity. Tile patterns, geometric motifs, plaster mouldings on the ceilings, natural wood and plenty of light were the main tools for this work. This was the starting point.
