Museum of Mechanical Music in Palmela, Portugal by MIGUEL MARCELINO, ARQ. LDA.

Wednesday, February 8th, 2017


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.

Quinta do Carregal in Tondela, Portugal by WAATAA_we are all together around architecture

Tuesday, February 7th, 2017

Article source: WAATAA_we are all together around architecture

In a seemingly infinite territory and mostly occupied by pines and oaks, the implantation of the house marks a space and an intention. A space of pause, serenity and breathing, surrounded and protected by the green patch that filters the light and the eyesight, purifies the air and the soul and stimulates the corporal senses of who let himself be seduced by the elements of nature. An intention of materializing a perennial refuge that transforms and adapts itself to the site’s conditions and to the family that inhabits it.

Costa House in Almada, Portugal by Joao Tiago Aguiar Arquitectos

Thursday, January 19th, 2017

Article source: Joao Tiago Aguiar Arquitectos

The house where our intervention took place consists of a villa located in the seaside resort city of Costa da Caparica. This is a specific and surgical intervention in a highly deteriorated villa from the seventies. Although the refurbishment seemed urgent the financial contention demanded that the substantial architectonic intervention was limited to the 1st floor, attic and terrace over the garage, the rest of the house being renovated in a simpler and more convenient way.

Garage House in Lisbon, Portugal by fala atelier

Saturday, January 14th, 2017

Article source: fala atelier

The project started with an unconventional request from an open minded couple: within a very tight budget, to convert a windowless 200m2 garage into a house. The proposed intervention intended the clearest reading possible of the existing structure, emphasising its strength. While the garage was careless and grey, the house is clean and white; its materiality is flat, its light is abstract. Two generous bathrooms were included behind a curved wall, where a broken corner was before; the walls and ceilings were painted in white and the floor covered in a continuous polished concrete surface; the existing skylights we’re rethought. No other change felt necessary. Carefully placed elements organize the living areas: a marble kitchen, curtains, potted plants. Along with the furniture, the free standing elements carry the flexible identity of the house, hinting its domesticity while punctuating the abstract volume with color.

Graça Apartment in Lisbon, Portugal by fala atelier

Friday, January 13th, 2017

Article source: fala atelier 

The apartment lies in an unremarkable building in Lisbon. Its obsolete fragmented typology presented a series of small rooms, some devoid of natural light, and an impractical exterior bathroom. The intervention aimed to erase these faults and to clarify the use of the available surface: a gently curved wall was extended from façade to façade, defining the limit between a vast common space and the different private rooms.

Moradia Gafanha da Boavista in Portugal by Arch. Adalberto Dias

Tuesday, January 10th, 2017

Article source: Arch. Adalberto Dias

The plot in Gafanha da Boavista is narrow and long.

The program was interesting and not vulgar for a single family dwelling.

The clients, young couple formed in the Nordic countries, had a different concept of life and another notion of family structure and their relationships.

Three spaces and a corridor, in three volumes, was the concept of the project.

THE CLUB in Lisbon, Portugal by BUREAU A

Wednesday, December 28th, 2016

Article source: BUREAU A

THE CLUB is an installation by BUREAU A for the Lisbon Triennale 2016.

Conceived as an architecture dedicated to sound experience, it is a noise cabin hosting people for a dense dancing event. This travelling sound system, in the Jamaican tradition, adapts to a diversity of situations and generates, through its architectural presence, a particular relation to the context where it stands. It is composed of loudspeakers, a DJ booth, a bar and an entrance. In its smaller configuration, it creates a perfect micro dancefloor for about 25 people, entirely enclosed buy the sound architecture.
