Fresh summer interior project with contemporary emanation from Portugal – enjoy the luminosity of white, crisp surfaces, organic materials and clean, open shapes. The designers from RAS·A were asked, by their clients, to compose a home by uniting the functions of two apartments, on the top of a building, which was in the process of construction.
The unfinished state of the residence allowed the architects the possibility of introducing an open-air patio between the kitchen and the social zones – a fresh and entertaining option for an in-building terrace. The materials and furniture selections were chosen to enhance the dialog between the luminous white laminate and whitewash surfaces and the warmth of the natural wooden elements and cladding. The place design offers a beautiful and stylish modern alternation of textures and color tonalities all restrained within the borders of natural, light hues.
The main social zones feature a trendy open floor connection between kitchen, dining, and living room premises, which offers comfortable and easy-going family dynamics, with some characteristic and eye-catching insertions. The leisure time hammock in the main social zone becomes a romantic eye-catcher that provides a perfect relaxation and reading-time comfort in front of the large windows.
The modern fireplace that symbolically separates the dining from the sitting zones becomes a functional and stylish separation knack with double (triple- if you include the aesthetical pleasure) function. And most of all, the sliding white panels that can close of some of the areas in the unified social premise – the kitchen and the working and media-set corners of the open floor configuration – are the main focal and design elements that characterize the interior composition. Stylish, cute, and practical; all at the same time.
The clean lines and almost minimalist aesthetics of furniture and design elements continue throughout the apartments – corridors, bedroom, and even bathrooms offer the purity of organic entwinement between wood, white base and simple, clean lines – elegant and modern beauty with amazing in-between terrace- this is the contemporary apartment project in Vila do Conde, Portugal.
