Follow along as we renovate and design my new home! Over the next year we'll be turning this beautiful space into a studio, boutique rental and artist residency!
Wow! I cant believe I finally get to share that I purchased a house in Porto! We are so excited to be able to start this new venture for Melanie Abrantes Designs! We plan on having our future Porto Studio, an airbnb with all our fabulous products and an artist residency. I have been searching for a home there for over two years and this house is exactly what I was looking for!
This 4 story home has so much amazing history and was originally the studio of famed architect Adalberto Dias. She hopes to do the home justice with such an amazing piece of Porto history!
We will be working with Porto architects Fala Altelier
to do the renovations for this project.
We can't wait for you to stay in our home!
Here is a sneak peek inside our house while it was still an architect's studio! So many fun treasures!
We were already in love with the space and its history before we even knew it was ours!
This house has such an amazing story and interior, and was originally the studio of famed architect Adalberto Dias.
This is the entrance to our future studio!
A view of the study room!
Our favorite! The garden - look at the view!
Stay tuned and follow us at @madhouseporto to see as we design and renovate this four-story home in Porto with @fala.atelier.
