Housed in a 19th century heritage building in Porto, Baumhaus are serviced apartment rentals that celebrate the heritage of the building and contemporary design.
How would you describe Flattered in a nutshell?
Flattered to be in Porto are five luxury apartment rentals in Porto, Portugal. Architects Jose Carlos Cruz completely reinvented the historic townhouse into apartments with multipurpose spaces, minimal style, and, best of all, beautiful sea views. It's an attempt to create something outside of the range of hotel chains, rather something cozy and warm. A place where people can feel at home while getting up close with the artwork of local designers and artists.
And you also show artists’ work in each apartment?
In each apartment there are three, four or even five pieces by different artists. A friend of ours is a graffiti artist and he prepared a piece for us and told us about another artist, and it kind of started from there.
The idea is to have these pieces for a period of time and then rotate, so different artists can exhibit their pieces. And they are all for sale. We provide a catalog for people to look at. I think people enjoy this new way of acquiring art, living with it for a while and maybe deciding to buy it.
