Article source: ASPA Arquitectos

The 9 April Garden, also known as Albertas, has a belvedere with a panoramic views to the Tagus River and it is surrounded by numerous buildings of historical significance to Lisbon. This space appears as a promontory in a green space filled with tradition, open to the river and shipping, and with stunning views to the imposing right bank of river Tagus  Placed on the roofscape of an existing building which anchors the level change between the garden and the lower plane of the Avenida 24 de Julho, this bar/terrace is built on as single storey structure. Its ephemeral character, lightness of materials, transparency, permeability and reflection promotes and preserves existing views, allowing the structure not to become an obstacle.

Article source: Posto 9

These small vacation villas, were designed for an “anonymous” plot, along the beach of “Manta Rota” on the “Algarve” Coast. Despite belonging to different clients, the two houses were designed together, becoming a one house volume unit, consisting of two twin fractions. In each of the fractions, the ground floor is occupied by a single space, comprising lounge and kitchen areas, facing to the east and west respectively.

Estádio Municipal de Paredes in Mouriz, Portugal by Spaceworkers

Wednesday, August 17th, 2011

Article source: Spaceworkers

Countering a trend of the current stadium, enclosing its green area inside, was what motivated us in finding this solution. The idea of “giving back” an acre of green space to the town was the main motto for this project. A solid block, which levitates into the landscape. A building which you can see and lets those who pass by see it, too. An open space to the city where football is the main entertaining agent.

Party Animal in Praça de S. Paulo, Portugal by LIKEarchitects

Thursday, August 11th, 2011

Article source: LIKEarchitects

Regardless of its obvious architectonic and historic value and its central location in the city of Lisbon, the square of S. Paulo has been merely a passage site on the way to the underground clubs and bars on the downtown area – paradoxically marginal and desert in the centre of the city.

Casa em Sintra in Sintra, Portugal by Regino Cruz Arquitectos

Tuesday, August 2nd, 2011

Article source: Regino Cruz Arquitectos

We saw this piece of land, with almost one acre, where we conceived our villa, as a spiritual retreat where the secular cork trees were abundant. Any construction can be built in one or two years, but the privilege of contemplating cork trees like those is the product of at least five generations, more than 150 years in time. So, it’s fair to say that in this case, architecture occupied the remaining space.

House in Colares, Sintra, Portugal by Frederico Valsassina

Friday, July 29th, 2011

Article source: Frederico Valsassina

It’s all about a project for a summer home, as a result of an order that from the beginning had precise conditions in terms of program: a big living room, connected to an office area; a service area with space for light meals attached to the kitchen; a private area with two small bedrooms and a suite with an incorporated sauna; a garage with an incorporated workshop space; a swimming pool with a big solarium; well illuminated interior spaces opened over the landscape; Formal soberness and a contained budget were also demanded.
