SAMPAIO PINA 36

Located in the upper part of Lisbon, next to Parque Eduardo VII and a step away from Marquês de Pombal and Avenida da Liberdade, this building has a privileged location. This imposing building was built in 1936, distinguished by its circular, stylized and asymmetrical lines, geometric rigor and influences from constructivism, futurism, cubism and Art Nouveau.

WAREHOUSE LOGISTICS
AND FACTORY

The project is defined by an industrial pavilion with a total construction area of 4635 m2, with the purpose of creating a logistics and production platform in a single space.

Located on a slope of the Nossa Senhora do Monte viewpoint. It is an urban building, integrated in the area of the chapel of Nossa Senhora do Monte. It comprises a two-storey building and two annexes, one of which is a shed.

The intervention area is located in a valley area with granite slopes. The approach to the building complex is made by a single access road that winds through the valley until we approach the built-up area on the lowest level. The built ensemble is characterized by the building of the old shelter, located halfway up the slope and parallel to the stone walls that define the various platforms that rise up the hill. This is one of the perpendicular axes that define the set of spas and that intersects with the other axis defined by the set of stairs that connect the thermal spa building — located at the lowest level near the Ribeira de Coja - and the chapel, located in the top of the rise to the west.

The intervention to be carried out focuses on two distinct attitudes: the recovery of the existing house and subsequent adaptation to the intended programmatic and functional content, and on the other hand the expansion and construction of a new building on a walled plot of land nearby.

HOTEL LOOKING FOR AN OWNER

The fact of the short period of time in the construction and organization processes and the intrinsic value that this project must have in the regions where it will be inserted. 
The proposal for this building has in itself the principle of integration in the natural conditions of the topography and a framework for the hotel program with its various integrated features. The building set is intended to be implemented on land with little slope, and square in shape, requiring an area of no less than 5500 m2

BW 04 ICONE REABILITAÇÃO DO CASTELO DE ARRAIOLOS_edited.jpg

Recreate habitability habits both in the local population and in the people who are taken there by another symbol of Arraiolos: the rugs. It seems imperative to us to develop a program that never forgets the fire to “cook” the urban fabric of the inhabited and active city with the castle and its ever-present wall.

EUROPAN 11

The speed of life and changes in our civilization are not always accompanied by the evolution of urban systems.
Needs and expectations of contemporary pronounced by society contrast significantly with what the existing urban design has to offer. The Smart City idea was driven around design for social innovation, sustainability and creating a space for the development of creative urban lifestyles.

MULTIPURPOSE PAVILION

A proposal for the Urban Park of Vila Franca de Xira presents two outstanding moments in the territory:
the Plaza de Toros to the northeast, a cylindrical volume, and the Pavilion to the southwest, a pure translucent box. Between these two moments is the leisure area that should be complemented by this new equipment.
The idea behind the proposal is the possibility of transfiguration of the volume built through its materialization and also by the various possibilities of paths that the equipment in operation suggests.
To the west, on the edge of the national road, we propose the inhabited wall, modulated with the restoration program.
