This project, based in an apartment with a mere 49 m2 and located in the Portuguese city of Porto, was designed by URBAstudios in 2016. The main objective of this remodeling was to exploit the available space, which takes advantage of the fact that its ceilings are fairly high, as it is built on the ground floor of an old building in the city.

This two-level penthouse with 295 m2 is located in one of the most important streets in the city of Rome, Italy – the Viale dei Parioli. Its owners have the privilege of being able to see the dome of the Basilica of Saint Peter from the comfort of their own terraces, every single day… We could not imagine a better view!

When many people think of modern housing, their minds often go to brand new buildings that have only just been constructed. On the contrary, however, some of our favourite contemporary homes have actually already been standing for generations and have simply been recently refurbished. We’re huge fans of any design and decor scheme that makes an otherwise outdated building into something modern but comfortable. That’s exactly the story with House Four!
Finding decent sized housing in the middle of a city can be difficult and expensive because many full sized housing options within the city limits are quite small but quite highly priced. Every once in a while, however, a designer comes across a lot where an old home can be transformed into something more contemporary. Have you ever seen, however, modern city homes that are so in line with stereotypical city living that they end up looking and feeling quite cold? Well, the designers of House Addition found a way to create a house with the perfect level of city contemporary in a decently sized, comfortable home!
