The general operation is the modernization of Alcântara’s Domestic Wastewater Treatment Station. Because of the environmental preservation, it was indispensable the creation of a cover for this big equipment. The program had also foreseen two service buildings, to be located at the side of the Station: one to control the Station, another to serve as headquarters to the responsible public company.

In the project, these programs are overlaid: the Station is covered with a “thick coat” habitable, that contains the entire program for the necessary services, circulations and its support areas. In a territorial scale relation, this garden cover extends the green hills of Alcântara’s valley, helping to reduce the impact caused by the existing road infrastructures.

The construction is integrated within the thickness of this cover. Modelling the slopes, habitable conditions are created as well as hierarchies between spaces. In the streets, the cover is ripped off, ventilating and illuminating, but never exposing. The administrative areas are defined by a limit wall, a glass and some free volumes, that contain secondary functions, separating intern circulations from the working spaces.
