Project description

The idea is to design a project which can be used as an example for other projects in Lisbon taking into account the citie's history and cultural heritage and embracing the contemporary time in which we live. Simultaneously, the project cares about revitalizing the plot area and maximizing health and wellbeing, while minimizing impact on the environment. The Contemporary Pombaline House Project is a combination between light construction, urbanism, sustainable development and history of Lisbon.
