Lost in the garden
A Modular System refuge in the middle of a new house garden, in Porto (Portugal).


Using the Modular System as the building support and the outer space of a new house as the background scenario, this project started with the idealization of its own resident and the creation of a supporting pavilion that could respond to her / his needs. The pavilion was designed as a working space and inspiration refuge for an editor and fashion journalist / stylist. The concept behind the Interior Design was the female body reflected in the unlimited effects of a mirror. The soft and warm skin tones blend through the metallic details and organic shapes that unifies the three pavilions, which bring together a creative office, a library and a fitting / dressing room.

Explain how and why you created this work. Was it for a specific brief, etc.?

Despite having the potential to be transformed into a real space, this project arises in a academic environment. It was one of the first projects in which I have had contact with the disciplines of Interior Design and Architecture. The briefing of this project was to idealize a new space in a garden, that could be supporting the needs of main house with other space functions.

What were you trying to express?

As an Interior Designer, I see myself as an eclectic person. I have a lot of different interests, inside and outside of this discipline. But focusing our mind in Interior Design field, I idealize various types of concepts along with the projects that I have to work. In this particular one, I wanted to create a space that exudes femininity and softness. Almost inspired by the architectural concept of Niemeyer, I wanted the woman to the the inspiration and the realization of this project.

Is it 100% your original work?

Yes, off course. Even though this proposal has already some years since I created it, I didn't changed the main ideas and the concept. I simply felt along the way that I could create more visual information or even upgrade some of it with the aim to be more understandable. But I have the rights of this project.
