This is an upstream project in a time when the city has been gradually emptied from its inhabitants under the pressure of tourism and real estate speculation. In this scenario, this is a project of resistance since it grows from the desire of a family to remain in its own neighbourhood, place for their closer relations. This will guided even the way the project was shaped.Save this picture!© do mal o menosThe main façade overlooks Bartolomeu Dias street, an important axe running parallel to the riverside, that starts from Alcantara, crosses Belem’s monumental area and ends in Pedrouços street. This is a lively street, mostly residential, with some ground floor services and shops. The rear elevation, instead, overlooks Beco da Ré, a narrow and pedestrian street, surrounded by irregular blueprinted buildings. For its higher level of privacy, the inhabitants appropriate this street with chairs and drying clothes hanging outside, bringing in mind the typical atmosphere of the countryside villages. The difference of scale and use between the main road and the rear one stands out, becoming a driving line in the design process.Save this picture!© do mal o menosSave this picture!Plan – 2nd floorSave this picture!© do mal o menosThe building with 60 square meters and two floors is highly degraded, making the demolition of the whole inside mandatory.  In order to respond to the programmatic needs, specifically a permanent residence for a 5 members family, it was strictly needed to make a two floors ampliation, aligning the building volume with the dominant height of the built surrounding. The project aims at underling the contrast between the existing and the new. The new floors, indeed, uses a contemporary architectural expression, result of the new constructive technology, and creates dialogue with the existing ones. Therefore, the tension between two different construction times becomes the main identity trace for the building.Save this picture!© do mal o menosSave this picture!Plan – 1st floorSave this picture!© do mal o menosThe internal spatial organization is reversed, going from more private spaces at the bottom floors to social ones at the top, in order to take advantage from the better view on the Tejo river. The living area is privileged, at the expense of the rooms, that has a more punctual use. So, the rooms are organized in the first two floors, and the living areas are organized in the last three ones. In this way, starting from the entrance and following the internal circulation of the staircase, the spaces are firstly more compartmentalized, then gradually becoming bigger and more open, culminating with the terrace, that is south-oriented and inserted in the two-pitched roof.Save this picture!© do mal o menosAlong this same path, the relation with southern light and the river sight is a crescendo too. The position of the stairs in the different floors changes accordingly to the floor spatial organization needs, establishing double or triple height visual relation with the different floors.Save this picture!© do mal o menosSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© do mal o menosIn the main façade, at ground floor, the original tiles are restored and the typical “Lisbon green” is maintained in the doors and in the grids. The new openings are designed accordingly to the existing ones. The rear elevation is differently and autonomously composed, the openings gradually becomes wider, obtaining a better relation to the outside in the upper floors. The projecting veranda and the verde viana stone window, baptized “the green eye”, are the only exception in an elevation where the regularity, symmetry and relation with the context is the predominant character.Save this picture!© do mal o menosProject gallerySee allShow lessAerial Imagery Depicts Iconic Modern and Contemporary Architecture in a New PerspectiveArticlesSan Francisco: Modern Housing in The Golden CityArticles Share Projects Year:  “COPY” Photographs Building at Bartolomeu Dias / Aurora ArquitectosSave this projectSaveBuilding at Bartolomeu Dias / Aurora ArquitectosSave this picture!© do mal o menos+ 51Curated by Matheus Pereira Share Photographs:  do mal o menos Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Building at Bartolomeu Dias / Aurora Arquitectos Area:  2464 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project Architects: Aurora Arquitectos Area Area of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeAurora ArquitectosOfficeFollowProductsGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRenovationRenovationLisbonPortugalPublished on June 25, 2020Cite: “Building at Bartolomeu Dias / Aurora Arquitectos” [Edifício na Bartolomeu Dias / Aurora Arquitectos] 25 Jun 2020.
