Housing in Rua Corpo Santo

Residentials

Lisbon, PT - 2015

1200 m2

Completed

It is a 18th century building, located in the Cais do Sodré area, in Lisbon. The building was in ruin, with the collapse of the entire interior wooden structure (front walls, partition walls, floors...), except for the first two floors built against the slope, saving the gap between the street Ferragial and Rua Corpo Santo, built in stone masonry and vaulted structure. With this condition, the idea of the project is to reconstruct, inside, as in Pombaline architecture, a new structure, maintaining the “scenery” of the facades. Metal frames were built, supported on the main structure of the existing vaulted floors, which support a light horizontal structure, made of light steel and wood, thus minimizing the horizontal efforts transmitted on the existing masonry walls, with the ultimate goal of reducing as much as possible the loads on the first two floors and on the foundations. 

This strategy gave rise to a spatial structure very similar to the original and an apt solution for the intended housing use. On the lower two floors, the commercial use was maintained. The outer wooden window openings were reproduced, guaranteeing their thermal / acoustic performance and the vaulted spaces were recovered. Interior spaces were designed with a simple, contemporary language, as they have always been. 

Lioz stone, wood on the floors and white carpentry painted were the materials used.
