Are you ready for an extreme makeover? Fala Atelier has transformed a windowless garage in Lisbon into a bright, industrial home for a young couple. The open-plan living space includes a parking spot for their car. The interiors just look amazing! Enjoy…
The Porto architecture studio was asked to convert the 200-square-metre garage into a liveable space for the couple. They just turned it into something cooler than ever! Take a look inside…
“The project started with an unconventional request from an open-minded couple – within a very tight budget, to convert a windowless garage into a house,” said the architects.
“The proposed intervention intended the clearest reading possible of the existing structure, emphasizing its strength,” they continued. “While the garage was careless and grey, the house is clean and white; its materiality is flat, its light is abstract.”
The architects have created a largely open-plan living area and tucked two bathrooms behind a curving wall. All walls and the ceiling were painted white, while the floor was covered in polished concrete. The roof was opened up to include skylights, and additional decoration was kept to a minimum. How nice?
Each of the areas within the open-plan living space can be separated off by thick velvet curtains.
Fala Atelier is led by Magalhães with Ana Luisa Soares and Ahmed Belkhodja. Other interiors by the studio include a Porto estate agents with marble furniture and partitions and a Lisbon apartment with a minimal aesthetic and sliding doors.
