Ivens Art - Residential Building

Residentials

Lisbon, PT - 2014

3200 m2

In Progress

This project is the result of an private initiative architectural competition. It is a late-18th century building, and expanded with another floor and attic in the beginning of the 19th century, which was very degraded, due to poor maintenance and successive changes of poor quality, aggravated by the damage caused for the construction of a tunnel and metro station. 

The building had a particularly rich decorative heritage in terms of mural painting and tiles, which was one of the main motivations of the owner of the work to abandon an already approved project, which considered the complete demolition of the interior, and to choose a recovery strategy. The project was carried out with the awareness that it should be part of the historical construction process of the building, using compatible materials or the same nature as the existing ones, balancing the desire for preservation with the awareness that the current intervention would be one more that would have to establish value systems and make choices. An in-depth study of the existing heritage was carried out, with an extensive historical report, a structural diagnosis and an intense work of prospecting for mural paintings since the vast majority were hidden by successive layers of painting. The first operation of the project was the elimination of all spurious elements, partitions that subdivided the spaces and other types of constructions added over time, in search of the original plan. The new elements necessary for the current needs, such as sanitary installations, cabinets, air conditioning, and others, were introduced in each apartment, as if objects / devices or pieces of furniture were involved. The kitchens remained in their original position, with the chimneys recovered. The exterior is taken by other “devices” (in the small patio facing the street) announcing the project's strategy. The interface between new and existing was minimized, and converge into a dialogue, guaranteeing the reversibility of interventions, the best adaptability to new needs, as well as future ones, with the greatest respect for the heritage revealed in the meantime. In the same logic of overlaying one layer on top of another, the desire to introduce artistic interventions emerged from the beginning, following on from the successive decorative campaigns that the building was being targeted for, which materialized in José Pedro Croft's notable artistic interventions and Iva Viana. 

An automated parking system, for 21 cars was also created, which made it possible to concentrate the excavation in a very small area, enabling the maintenance of the building's structure and its complete recovery.
