GRAU.ZERO Architecture’s Modern Apartment Makeover

This is GRAU.ZERO Architecture’s Modern Apartment Makeover in Aveiro, Portugal.

The Portuguese architecture firm, led by Sérgio Nobre, designed this small space (about 616 sq. ft.) from an outdated existing apartment that’s long and thin. Although currently unfurnished, the interior features bright white walls, fun corners and zig-zagged walls, and a ton of open space. They provided the floor plan so you can get a feel for the house as a whole.

Do you like white walls? How about modern spaces? Read more about what they did to the space on the last page.

    I would really love to see this once all the furniture and personal touches are put in, the layout and light are beautiful. I love the crooked walls and the little visual touches in the architecture, this would be lovely just full of plants and bright colors!

    Don’t like the color blue. Too much of a contrast. This particular shade has a lot of black in it; makes it look industrial; echo empty; cold. This would probably be fine for a single or double male abode. For myself, I’d prefer cream and aqua; take the curse off the place. Aqua is the new black.

      Aqua is THE BEST 🙂 Keep trying to convince my husband of it, but I don’t think he sees it quite the same way hehe

    I really love the layout. It lends fun lines where otherwise it would be very boring. Personally, I love the contrasting blue as a color — I don’t find it cold at all. To each his own. It’s great that a gallon of paint, or two, wouldn’t cost that much. But the functionality of the place is high, with just enough space to mix it up and individualize it. I’m also a huge fan of skylights and love all that light!

      Yes paint is one of the easiest things to change in a home 🙂

    Brainstorming for a collective of my tiny home. When I am ready I will have my collection of ideas to help design.
