Ponte de Lima Municipal Market in Portugal by Guedes Cruz Arquitectos

Thursday, May 29th, 2014

Article source: Guedes Cruz Arquitectos

When Ponte de Lima Municipal Market was built in 1927 it was the cause of public discussions concerning the pros and cons of its location, although no negative remarks seem to have been made about its elegant design.

70 years later we can still see its somewhat domineering relationship, from the height of its granite base, with the city centre and the avenue of plane trees.

Apartment Refurbishment in Lisbon, Portugal by Henrique Barros-Gomes

Friday, May 23rd, 2014

Article source: Henrique Barros-Gomes

Complete refurbishment of a late 60´s apartment in Lisbon.

Facing 3 streets, the apartment has great sun exposure and nice views to the surrounding areas. However, its original condition showed a very spacious, but also poorly divided and unbalanced interior, with many partitions, resulting in a needlessly intricate and dark plan. Social and private areas arrangement did not make much sense either – It was felt from the first moment that the house would gain if its organization was completely reversed. Nevertheless, it was a solid construction with a generous ceiling height, and great potential for intervention.
