R017 is a minimalist house located in Porto, Portugal, designed by Paolo Martins. In this renovation project of a two bedroom apartment from the 90's, the main objective was to enhance the visual and spacial statement of the space, previously hindered by the existing stunted room division. By customer request, one of the existing rooms was transformed into an office/guest room, including a sliding wall solution that allows to fully open the room to the living room. The kitchen was also transformed into an open space, fully connected with the living room. This allowed to enhance the fluidity of the common areas of the apartment into a single and generous living space.
