Jardim das Amoreiras House is a minimal home located in Lisbon, Portugal, designed by Maison Amarande. Maison Amarande restored this 19th century four storeys house into a contemporary style home articulated around a minimal stone and wooden central stairs. The use of warm and natural materials such as stunning marble pieces for the kitchen splash back, a beautiful natural oak wooden floor with chevron pattern results into a very sleek space. The house has been entirely furnished with new pieces sourced from exclusive design companies and completed with a few pieces of commissioned artworks thanks to a close collaboration with international artists.
The house has large windows on three sides and is nicely isolated from the exterior with refined Venetian wooden blinds which con- tribute to create a soft and calm atmosphere. The general color palette of neutral beige-grey tones is punctuated with some touches of accent colors.The XIX century old house had to be renovated into a contemporary space but with traditional architectural Portuguese elements such as the large stone window frames, the decorative metal work balconies and the carved wooden entry door.
The client was looking to create an intimate, comfortable and elegant home with quality materials, simple lines and soft tones with some touches of accent colors. The house had been entirely decorated with new pieces of furniture and artwork. It was also important to create a dialogue between the interior of the house and the beautiful historical environment made of the viaduct and the Amoreiras garden.The collaboration with the client has been smooth all along and turned into a nice friendship.
