Team n° 20

Luis Residence, Lisbon, Portugal

Project description

The main idea of the concept was to design minimalist architecture that would connect historical buildings with modern design and function. The new buildings in the area consist of two narrow masses connected by a ground floor. The proposed building follows this construction principle, with the mass visually divided in two-thirds. The section in the mass is formed by embedded facade windows that transition into a skylight. The new building respects the urban structure of the proposed site plan.
