Inhabiting the city centre. Taking advantage of the centrality, with the required privacy and retreat. Living in larger and connected spaces, full of light. The architects opened the building to the outer space, and extend it on balconies that increase the space of habitation, which thus also happens outdoors, in contact with the open air, a relic in the centre of the city. Interior and exterior are in constant dialogue.
The amazing Plano Humano team worked the materiality according to its characteristics of comfort, robustness, and longevity. the minimalist interior contrasts while connects with the powerful exterior in thermo modified wood. A disused building gained a new life, and give new lives through its 15 apartments and 2 shops, connected by common leisure spaces, such as gardens, a gym, and a SPA. Wood is the hallmark of the building. A traditional and noble material, allied to the current technology, in the cladding of facades that will always be dynamic, different for each moment of the day and for each apartment.
The facade is dynamic, it has constant movement, which makes it a mutable, almost living building, that transcends its inner life to the exterior. The wood is applied in automated shutters, that while privatizing the interior spaces, increase the building´s energy efficiency. They limit or allow the interior solar incidence, depending on if it is summer or winter, which is a Mediterranean city like Lisbon has a great preponderance in thermal comfort.
The system of shutters aims to make the elevation dynamic, allowing the life and use required by the interior space to be transmitted to the space and exterior aspect of the building, which will always be variable from apartment to apartment, dictating different circumstances of opening or closing of the shutters, and thus giving a constant dynamism to the facade.
