The concept for this space is to transform an old chapel into a comfortable and modern apartment. The idea was to retain part of the identity of the pre-existing chapel through the restoration of the façade, the creation of a vaulted ceiling on the first floor, and the double ceiling height in the entrance area.
The entrance, through the beautiful and quiet Rua do Ferraz, is leveled with the floor of the living room, the kitchen (equipped with appliances TEKA) and the patio. On the first floor, is the area of the bedroom and of the WC.
Carpentry, pavements and stone masonry have been object of great detail and constitute the traditional and historical language of the apartment, in contrast to the modern concept of “studio”.
Part of a mansion that is being rehabilitated with great attention to detail. Works began in September 2017 and will be finished in December 2019. The coat of arms on the facade accounts for the year 1703 and the house is known by the name of the last family to inhabit this palace – The Sousa e Silva´s family home.
The emblematic Rua das Flores was opened in 1518, by King Manuel I; currently, is one of the most important streets in the city of Porto.
Porto is one of the oldest tourist destinations in Europe. Its rich artistic heritage, the Port wine, outdoor leisure spaces and cultural life are just some of the reasons to visit this city.
