Portuguese studio Fala Atelier has converted a windowless 200 sqm garage in Lisbon into a light-filled house. The intervention proposed the clearest reading possible of the existing structure, emphasizing its strength. While the garage was raw and grey, the house is clean and white, with ceiling light. Two generous bathrooms were included behind a curved wall, where once there was a broken corner, while the walls and ceilings were painted in white and the floor covered in a continuous polished concrete surface. The existing skylights were redesigned with a minimalistic approach.
Carefully placed elements organize the living area: a marble kitchen, curtains and potted plants. Along with furniture, the free standing elements carry the flexible identity of the house, highlighting its volume with color.
