Playful Portuguese Interiors
The Remodeled 227 Flat by OODA Merges Acrobatics and Architecture

A brilliant way to breathe new life into a tired building is to take the approach that was exercised in the 227 Flat by OODA Architects. The two-storey apartment is wedged into a tightly packed residential neighborhood in Porto with a slender floor plan and few opportunities for drawing in sunlight.

Confronting these challenges, the designers didn’t simply rework the dwelling to produce satisfactory living spaces. Instead, they went above and beyond to create an exceptionally bright abode with a slew of quirky features that enhance the house’s individuality. A compact staircase is cloaked in warm wooden cladding, white walls provide the illusion of space and skylights pull brilliant rays from the roof to the first floor. However, the favorite feature of the 227 Flat by OODA might just be its suspended net hammock that hangs over the stairwell.
