PRÍNCIPE REAL HOUSE in Lisbon, Portugal by BICA Arquitectos

Friday, December 23rd, 2016

Article source: BICA Arquitectos

The building was constructed in the 19th century and expanded in the years of 1950. This apartment, located at the maximum altimetry of one of the Lisbon city’s seven hills, with a panoramic view to the north and south, is part of this expansion, absent of the characteristics that qualified the original construction as palatial.

Silence as a language – NSN Church in Leiria, Portugal by BICA Arquitectos

Wednesday, December 21st, 2016

Article source: BICA Arquitectos

The church is located in the center of a crowded village. The intervention is based on a building previously constructed, where the interior was unfinished. We started with the idea of “building the silence”. In a world full of noise, the church represents a break, a moment of rest, peace and meditation. The strong spiritual character is present but doesn’t intimidate, it gives a sense of protection. The selection of materials, the way of moulding both natural and artificial light and the absence of images had the purpose of achieving harmony, a primarily condition in order to assure silence.

3 Houses 3 Sisters in Coimbra, Portugal by BICA Arquitectos

Tuesday, December 20th, 2016

Article source: BICA Arquitectos

In a small village near the city of Coimbra, 3 sisters inherit and share a land. They wanted to build a house that would join them for the second time in their lives, because the family houses they own are nowadays too large.

Located at the village’s entrance, this field is composed by two streets, a square and a small house. The implementation of the 3 houses elects as the main facade the south elevation, that adjoins the street and turns too the square at east.

The Craft Company is a small shop in the historic center of Cascais, on two floors with about 40m2 each. Initially there were three “nicely” fitted.

The yarn store invites us to a journey in time, the meeting between the modern and the classic. That was the customer’s goal and was the principle for the development of the project.
