The property designed by SPPARC Studio is located in the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea within the Kensington Conservation Area. The existing building masks the importance of this node junction and detracts from the enormous potential that the site offers to this vibrant and mixed area of Notting Hill Gate.

Retrofit expands balcony to receive more guests Project is signed by architect Sabrina Salles. The owners of this apartment have three teenage children and love to receive friends. The living room and the balcony asked for a retrofit to meet the current needs of the family, so fabrics, pictures, lighting were changed and the layout of the balcony was changed – the space received new chairs and planned joinery. A vertical garden brings more freshness and greenery to the apartment. The project was started by the Spaço Interior office and completed by the architect Sabrina Salles. Photography by Kadu Lopes.
Bespoke joinery optimizes space in a 30 m² apartment Project in Juiz de Fora is signed by architect Suzana Azevedo. As the city of Juiz de Fora (MG) is a university, the intention of the owners of this 31.60 m² apartment was to transform the property into a studio that would suit different types of residents and could be rented for different age groups.
For their first apartment, the young couple had a few requests: a green kitchen, an easy-to-clean home, space to receive friends, and a glass cabinet. All were attended by the architect Carolina Haddad, from CADDA Arquitetura, who also gave a personal touch: the glass that belonged to the client’s grandmother was modernized and now occupies a prominent place in the living room. To create the color palette from green, professionals and clients searched on Pinterest and decided to complement the decor with burnt cement and wood. In the bathroom, another boldness: blue walls! To accommodate more guests, the balcony island has casters and can be moved if necessary. Photography by Julia Ribeiro.

CR apartment is a project designed by ESQVTA. Any kind of intervention in this space should not interfere with the existing one. More than proposing it was necessary to omit, more than designing it was necessary to recover and integrate, more than composing it was necessary to be simple and silent with rigour in response to new needs.
