this inspiring, albeit tiny, artist’s studio in lisbon has been transformed from a dark, abandoned warehouse into a musician’s bright and beautiful dream studio. once long forgotten, the backyard of a building in the Portuguese capital has been made over by architecture and design firm ARKstudio with polished concrete floors and pine wood beamed ceilings, doors and vintage furniture. this minimalist studio is furnished simply with flea market finds and warmed with a stove-like fireplace, but one of my favorite design elements is the exposed wood shelving in the kitchenette displayed with an enviable collection of Portuguese ceramics and kitchen wares. simply lovely! for the full tour, visit micasa.
