GROSS BUILDING AREA
Located in a prime location, overlooking the city of Lisbon, Campo dos Mártires da Pátria, is one of the most promising urban regeneration areas today.
The building started as a noble house and dates back prior to the 1755 earthquake that destroyed part of the city of Lisbon. Having survived this natural disaster, there has been several interventions throughout the years. Before the project, most of the building was abandoned and in poor living conditions.
The main purpose of this proposal was to give back the building´s original character and dignity representative of the historical zone in which it is inserted.
With deep respect for the classical Portuguese architecture, all of the facades of the building were restored, including all its decorative elements and existing masonry.
