Garage House by Fala Atelier
Garage House is a minimal residence located in Lisbon, Portugal, designed by Fala Atelier. The project started with an unconventional request from an open minded couple: within a very tight budget, to convert a windowless 200m2 garage into a house. The proposed intervention intended the clearest reading possible of the existing structure, emphasizing its strength. While the garage was careless and grey, the house is clean and white; its materiality is flat, its light is abstract. Two generous bathrooms were included behind a curved wall, where a broken corner was before; the walls and ceilings were painted in white and the floor covered in a continuous polished concrete surface.
