dc.description.abstract The production of low quality goods and the constant pursuit for novelty have changed the nature of our lifestyles and the work of interior designers. When our consumption of natural resources is exceeding the capacity of nature to renew itself, perhaps it is time to return to values that have for many years been neglected. This thesis presents an alternative to the business as usual interior design, by promoting an endure and evolve scenario for the work of interior designers, which is to be achieved by recycling and specifying long lasting products in our projects. While analyzing the current trends on the market and a more sustainable alternative, the author provides guidelines towards a changing pattern for the work of the interior designer. These guidelines are supported by a completed project and interviews with professionals that promote renovation in their work. There are treasures to be found among the forgotten and the discarded objects around us, which can enrich our lives with their history and help us protect the fragile environment we live in. en
