We had the pleasure to be invited to integrate  Attitude’s magazine issue #80 “Secret”, for the category of Architects / Designers with Attitude, we are grateful for the recognition and we invite you to read the issue dedicated exclusively to the Portuguese schene.

“It’s beyond a shadow of a doubt that Portugal is currently on everybody’s lips, enjoying broad recognition overseas for the most varied of reasons and not simply because of tourism.
Its appeal also derives from a very particular identity. A legacy of traditions and knowledge – combined with skilful artisanal production and differentiating qualities – now being reinvented by a talented generation that has been making a name for itself in a vast range of creative areas.”

Arkstudio as a multi-disciplinary platform embraces different challenges ranging from collaboration with various professionals or exploring various disciplines and areas of intervention.

This time we are sharing the styling we have made for the photoshoot recently done with the photographer Rodrigo Cardoso for The Lisboans, short rental apartments in the center of Lisbon. 

We consider styling as complementary to architecture and decoration and it becomes fundamental for photoshoots. Styling  requires prior planning and careful attention to detail.

A Casa C’ alma is our latest decoration project for a guesthouse A Casa C’ Alma located in Praça das Flores, Lisbon.

The guesthouse facilities are in an old building which was previously renovated and belongs to a tradicional neighbourhood with small curvy streets, town houses, squares and trees, therefore the aim of this project is to enhance the old character of the “old” family houses.

Like in the domestic Portuguese culture, which gives an extreme importance to the kitchen, many persons describe it as the center of the house – it heart- where every one meets and socialize. We were inspire and gave a special attention to this assumption.  The choice of the decoration for the kitchen was carefully chosen and the glass display case was treated carefully like a “cabinet de curiosities” mixing functional every day objects with precious findings…

We really hope you like it!!
