Palatina位于里斯本市中心，是一座修建于20世纪中期的小型宫殿。建筑师Carlos Rebelo de Andrade为之赋予了葡萄牙传统风格（Português Suave）的平面布局。建筑起初被用作独户家庭住宅，后来在本世纪初被转变为四间独立的公寓。Palatina 2号公寓占据了倒数第二个楼层和顶层阁楼，这里曾经被用作服务和起居空间，包括佣人房间、洗衣房、熨衣和裁缝间等。
Palatina is a small palace built in the centre of Lisbon in the mid-20th century according to a plan designed by Architect Carlos Rebelo de Andrade in the Português Suave style. Originally conceived to serve the purpose of a single family residence, the building was converted into four distinct apartments earlier this century. Apartment Palatina II takes up the penultimate floor and the attics of the mansion, formerly service areas and the living quarters for household staff – maids quarters, laundry, ironing and seamstress rooms.

Through the means of a restricted scope of intervention, the project sought to modernise and upgrade the apartment. With a very low ceiling height, the kitchen was fully restructured, opening up a new window over the workbench area. The wall separating the living room – formerly interior – from the dining room was eliminated. The design and installation of a feature, in carpentry, divided the disproportionate entrance area and providing for a small hallway, a generous bookshelf and a technical wardrobe.

The staircase leading up to the attics, formerly contained within walls, was unveiled and integrated into this same carpentry system that interlinks the various sections of this intervention. Furthermore, in the attic, the walls that had hidden the wooden structure were eliminated and thus taking due advantage of the amplitude of this raised space.
