Portuguese office Rar Studio has renovated an Álvaro Siza-designed apartment in Lisbon to create a brighter and more spacious interior.
Apartment AMC is located in Lisbon’s Chiado district in one of the blocks that make up Álvaro Siza’s Terraços de Bragança development – a housing complex completed by the architect in 2004.
“Working within the scope of a Siza project represents a desirable challenge,” said Rar Studio.
“The inexorable weight of the inherent responsibility runs in parallel to a sense of pointlessness of intervening within a framework that requires no such work. We thus focused on the needs, desires and expectations of the client,” they continued.
Rar Studio is a Lisbon-based architectural practice founded in 2015 by Rita Aguiar Rodrigues.
The studio has completed a number of interior projects in the Portuguese city, including the renovation of a 19th-century apartment, which features marble bathrooms and simple furnishings designed to complement its period mouldings.
