RA \\ SÃO PAULO 55
LISBOA \\ PORTUGAL \\ 2013
The objective of the intervention is the refurbishment of a Pombalino building to be used as short term renting apartments. Located in the corner of Rua de São Paulo and Rua dos Remodeladores, close to the river front of the traditional Lisbon’s neighborhood São Paulo, the building had, since its completion, in the middle of the 19th century, several significant interventions, changing its original character in the majority of the apartments. As a project strategy, in order to minimize costs, it was an option to maintain the “cage structure” reinforcing it punctually. Being an edification with a lot of interventions from earlier times, this one is one more in its history. The option was to change its typology to three apartments per floor. Adding an elevator, substituting all its infrastructures, window-frames and ceilings, and maintaining sills, title pages, floor, and interior doors. For maintenance proposes the disqualified plaster in the façade was substituted by traditional portuguese tiles.
