This award-winning rehabilitation project in Lisbon’s riverside area reinforced the owners Fidelidade Properties’ commitment to the city.
Through the recovery of reference elements, it was possible to maintain the memory and the industrial character that marked an era, while at the same time adapting it to the current user’s requirements.
The whole central body, of an ‘industrial character’, was kept with the existing vaults preserving the main structure, the metallic elements, the great brick walls and other diverse elements.
The use of the geometry of the roof made it possible to create exceptional and unique interior volumetry, as well as allowing for natural light to enter the entire building, allowing work places to be illuminated through light wells created on all floors.
By uncovering the rich palette of textures, tonalities and shapes, it became possible to create a space of proximity and collaboration that reflects the client’s own culture.
Based on the concept of reshaping the experience of spaces, the building offers three informal meeting spaces, a 140-seat auditorium, a library, an art gallery, a restaurant, a lounge area, 23 meeting rooms, 157 offices for a total of 380 workstations, and also a music studio and a medical office.
