The client's requirements:


An apartment to renovate on the 3rd floor of a building over 40 years old, on the first line, in the city of Porto, in Foz where the river meets the sea.


Total demolition of the entire interior.


Three bedrooms with possibility of turning into two.


Privileging the views over the ocean.


 


What to do with the blank canvas?


Would just taking advantage of its location be enough?


Yes.


 


The color of the river - "Rio Douro, silver color" in the floor and walls in gray.


The use and abuse of wood in the coatings, as if it were a boat.


The round shapes that remind us of the waves of the sea and the curvilinear shapes of the boats.


The design of its interior emerges naturally.


Uncomplicated spaces for a simple and practical way of life.


Introspection takes place in the bedrooms.


All the other spaces live and coexist with the sea right there in front.


The senses are sharpened.
