June 2018 · Algés, Portugal · Detailed Design Phase
This new build is located in a small commercial street in the centre of Algés, just outside Lisbon towards Cascais. The design seeks to elevate the building, by creating a void on ground level, thus sustaining the building between the two neighbouring buildings. This void creates a rich atmosphere for the pedestrian street and allows for parking for the residential flats.
Each apartment has balconies on both facades. The balcony balustrades are unfolded into beautiful benches coated in ceramic tiles designed by an award-winning ceramic artist Maria Ana Vasco Costa.
