The apartment, with 98 m2, located in Entrecampos, Lisboa, was characterised by excessive compartmentalisation and poor distribution of interior spaces. With a simple gesture, the intervention aims to optimize de space. The major change concerns the social areas of the dwelling - kitchen and living room - which were repositioned. Its redesign allows to widen the entrance to the apartment and to get a better use of the available area. The kitchen and most of the finishings were renewed with the exception of the wood parquet, which preserves the apartment identity. A piece of carpentry was added throughout the living room and the bedroom, visually unifying the space.
