Do you live in the kind of stunning place where the weather is lovely most of the year? Then things like open concepts, sunlit windows, and lots of access to relaxing outdoor spaces are probably pretty important features to you in a home design. Why choose one of these things, though, when you can have them all? Just check out B.A. Apartment if you don’t quite believe us!
Located in Lisbon, Portugal, B.A. Apartment is a stunning residential project designed and created by innovative architectural firm Atelier Data in 2016. It features a simple colour scheme consisting mostly of white, which gives the place a somewhat contemporary feeling, but not so much as to qualify it as a thoroughly modern home. Instead, kitschy pattern furniture accessories and brightly coloured wall prints are used as pops of personality and statement throughout the house, while the white of the walls and much of the furniture lets those things take even more centre stage.
We’ve already talked about the idea of open concept homes, but B.A. apartment might be in a league of its own when it comes to this feature. Sure, the whole apartment is full of stunning floor to ceiling windows that you can gaze out of, but what’s better for bringing the pretty outdoors inside than getting rid of barriers all together? The family room in B.A. Apartment features a wall that slides upwards like a garage door in order to give residents and guests entirely uninhibited access to the beautiful deck full of seating space.
Just in case the abundant houseplants and the eye grabbing wall art pieces aren’t enough, the home does feature smoothly polished wooden floors that serve to contrast the modern white lines featured throughout the house and keep the place natural and grounded. Natural is good, after all, when you’re so intent on being able to enjoy the outdoors from your home that you’ll willing to retract an entire wall!
