Rua Maria Loft is a minimalist loft located in Lisbon, Portugal, designed by KEMA Studio. The pre-existing space had a function of carpentry, with a limited access to light and a small, lacking identity exterior space. The architects decided to maintain as much of the interior as possible to let more natural daylight in and enforce the relation between interior/exterior. The intervention´s objective was to appreciate “the existing” and add on top of it. The “wet functions” were contained within rigid massive pre-existing brick walls, leaving all the “dry functions” in the remaining space.
