I have an admin namespace in my app. I would like to have a layout
that would work like app/layouts/application.html.erb, but instead off
affecting the entire app it would only affect all the views inside of

How would this be done?

Create a basic admin controller, like this:

class Admin::BaseController < ApplicationController
    layout :admin

Then make all admin controllers inherit from it. And also create an
layouts/admin.html.erb file ;)

Thanks Maurício.

That worked nicely.
