Boat Inspired Tiny Triangular Home In Central Lisbon

On a tiny triangular lot in central Lisbon, Luis Pedro built a right-angle home for his family taking advantage of every centimeter of the property. Working with difficult geometries- two corners have angles of less than 20 degrees-, Pedro found inspiration in shipbuilding.

One acute angle of the home juts out toward the street like a prow where he used a window and a mirror to open up the space and funnel the occupant forward. Every window is angled to frame a view.

Built entirely with reinforced concrete, the home allocates one function for each floor: the ground floor is an office; above it is an entirely open floor with the social functions (kitchen/living room).

The third floor begins with the social half of the bathroom (a sink and laundry bin) and culminates in two bedrooms and the private parts of the bath (toilet/shower). The roof is covered with an open terrace with views of the neighborhood and River Tagus.
