Portuguese Modern Apartments is the third and most recent publication in a series of books edited by Uzina Books dedicated to the theme of domestic housing. As in previous editions Portuguese Contemporary Houses and Portuguese Restored Housesa retrospective of works built in the last ten years and a generational record covering a wide group of architects of several generations is proposed. The modern term does not apply in this case, so much for the association that can be made of it to the designation of a current of architecture developed from the thirties of the last century, before, it refers to the way of presenting 41 apartment interiors that were recently reformulated with the use of both current languages and new materials that correspond to the modernity that the construction market offers. In this sense, the interest of this approach lies essentially in the ability that each architect has to transform a housing space that already exists and that in a great majority of cases presents noble characteristics of a type of construction from the past,which can now be preserved and improved with the care of adapting to the demands of today's life. An essential book, full of examples and contemporary models.
