Tuesday, February 28th, 2017

Article source: PROD architecture & design

Paço de Vitorino is a manor house located in the north of Portugal that has been in the same family since the mid-16th century. It’s history is marked several relevant events. The most outstanding dates from the mid-18th century when a major intervention occurred according to baroque canons. The resulting structure is characterized by a three stories main house on the east side, two lateral wings on the north and south side and a small chapel along the entrance wall on the west. These elements delineate a central large yard defined by adorned facades.

FB Office in Lisbon, Portugal by WAATAA_we are all together around architecture

Wednesday, February 22nd, 2017

Article source: WAATAA_we are all together around architecture

The office is materialized from the transformation of two independent commercial space in a single physically connected one. Apparently in an unnatural way, the resulting unified space is re-divided in three with distinct identities. Two different work spaces in opposite sides and a transition passage that regulates the hierarchical and functional relation between them.

LISBON STONE BLOCK in Lisboa, Portugal by Souza Oliveira – Arquitectura e Urbanismo Lda.

Tuesday, February 21st, 2017

Article source: Souza Oliveira – Arquitectura e Urbanismo Lda.

Lisbon and its “new avenues” (built in the beginning of the past century) are always a challenge for an architect.

Lisbon’s Stone Block is located in the corner of two major streets  and that position is somehow special in the relation that the building it-self creates with the “urban net”.

The idea/concept of the building is based in a “mutant facade”: a skin in stone, almost metamorphoses and movable.

RF III APARTMENT in Lisboa, Portugal by Joao Tiago Aguiar Arquitectos

Sunday, February 19th, 2017

Article source: Joao Tiago Aguiar Arquitectos

Transformation of a 4 bedroom apartment into a 2 bedroom apartment, increasing this way its social areas .

The apartment was essentially developed along its length, structuring itself around a long corridor. However, thanks to two existing courtyards in the building it benefited from the entry of natural light in its inner part. The house was quite compartmentalized, and the rooms, with tiny areas, were mainly oriented to those courtyards. On the rear façade there used to be a very large and disqualified marquise devoted to storage and cleaning areas. It had only one complete bathroom.

Av.Roma Apartment in Lisboa, Portugal by Joao Tiago Aguiar Arquitectos

Thursday, February 16th, 2017

Article source: Joao Tiago Aguiar Arquitectos

The apartment was too compartmentalized in the social areas.

There was only one common bathroom, since the other was conditioned to the maid’s room, only accessible from the kitchen.

The main idea was to bring together living-room, entrance hall and kitchen in an uninterrupted space, giving access to other compartments through a single indoor hall. The elimination of the maid’s room also enabled increasing the kitchen and the reorganization of the bathrooms.

Wednesday, February 8th, 2017

Article source: MIGUEL MARCELINO, ARQ. LDA.

The museum consists of a completely closed, opaque and abstract box. Just the main façade has a concavity that marks the entrance of the building. It houses a private colection of mechanical music boxes.

The organization is cruciform, around a central patio, that distributes to the buildings four sides. In one side there is the lobby, that works as a vertical distribution space, and to the other sides are three galleries of varying sizes. The transition between each of these four spaces is done through four antechambers.
