José Andrade Rocha studio has introduced the project called “Casa Na Mouraria”, which is an apartment of 64 sq. meters in Lisbon, Portugal. It is located in one of the old houses at the historical city center and used to have bad planning with uncomfortable connection of daily and sleeping zones. Architects performed some changes and transferred the living room to the street side, having combined it with the kitchen. Thus, bedrooms and bathroom have found their place in the opposite part of the apartment, which provides more intimate atmosphere. These rooms are now hidden behind the general hall in a form of dark cube with sliding doors. Moreover, the architects kept and recreated original finishing elements, including molding, and skillfully combined them with modern décor.
