Apartment in Braga
In the Portuguese city of Braga, Correia/Ragazzi Arquitectos remodelled two apartments, uniting them to create a duplex home for a family. The lower floor contains a kitchen, laundry, living room, terrace, guest bathroom and guest suite; while the upper floor is a more private zone, with three suites, one for the parents and two for the children. They are united by a feature staircase, which unfurls to create a balcony. A play of light and dark, and of different textures, occurs across the space, with cement walls, mosaic floors and black and natural-coloured wood.
