The ocean is the most striking feature of the landscape surrounding the Sao Felix Apartment. The breathtaking views are accentuated by a rather sober intervention in terms of material expression.

The common areas in the apartment (living room, dining room and kitchen) are arranged around a standalone volume, which performs a structural function. The more private areas are showcased by an olive wood volume with a natural texture.

This unit houses functions that are usually treated as secondary (bathrooms and technical areas) and serves as a visual counterpoint to the dominance of the sea in the common area. The bedrooms are fitted with simple materials and comfortable furniture to suit their domestic purpose.
