We finished renovating this flat in April 2008 – this was our first!
When first built, the attic was merely used as storage room, the only openings were destined to ventilation and the interior space wasn't finished.
It was only in the late XVIIIth century and in the beginning of the XIXth century that the attics - called 'águas furtadas' in Portuguese - were rehabilitated so that they could be used as housing for maids and footmen. As so and to provide the space the minimum conditions, the two roof dormers were added along with a chimney. The bathroom was probably combined later on, in the middle of the XXth century.
Even though meant to host the 'help' of this bourgeois family, this 'água furtada' was always very particular.
This is one of the highest rooftops in the street and therefore benefits from a magnificent solar exposition and an incredible rare view over the hills and the Tagus River.
The flat is a 60sqm open-space bellow the traditionally tiled pitched roof and surrounded by an assortment of fenestration. The smaller openings offer very particular framed views over Lisbon's rooftops while the bigger windows bring in a lot of sunlight. Natural light is everywhere, anytime of the day.
We placed the Italian style shower in one of the dormers, facing an unusual view: Lisbon's North hill side. You will have a shower to remember!
No need to describe in further detail, the pictures speak for themselves!
