Lisbon, PT - 2015

3250 m2

In Progress

The intervention area is located in a towering area of Alfama, Lisbon, exposed to the south, and with a privileged view of the Tagus River estuary. The Palace of Santa Helena was built by the Siqueira family, who lived in it for three centuries. Its final genesis results from the sum of different plots that, since 1594, the Siqueira family acquired in this area of the city. With its 17th century origin, the Palace has been the object, over time, of several and deep construction campaigns, either in response to external factors, from which the 1755 earthquake stands out, or as a result of factors intrinsic to the history of the family itself, subject to periods of greater or lesser social prominence, which were accompanied by new programmatic requirements. 

In 1993, a Training and Cultural Animation Cooperative acquired the property to install school equipment there. To this end, it carried out a program of demolitions, new constructions and adaptations that, like some previous interventions, brought a poor architectural and constructive value. This, gave way to an incoherent ensemble, and to a construction that had lost not only its purpose but also its nobility. 

The idea of the project is to build a large void, a large access yard, roughly square and complete the irregular periphery, between this and the limit of the lot. Not changing the relationship that the building establishes with the city, clarifying the reading of the Palace and returning its importance to it. The boundaries of the lot and the relationship with the surroundings are made through a thick inhabited wall. The intervention in the Palace was carried out with the demolition of all the small spurious bodies, without patrimonial value, which were added to it over time, including the correction of the coverings, so that each one corresponds to a formal and historical body. Within the same logic of recovery of the architectural grid and functional allocation, all interior compartments introduced in the last intervention were suppressed. 

The main existing Volumetry corresponds to a large parallelepiped with two wings that extend to the North and Northeast closing the yard in that direction.
The existing elevations, with the introduction / correction of window openings, aim to harmonize them with the others, or to provide the interior spaces with living conditions, always respecting of the pre-existing layer. The correction of the roof is made by recovering the assumption that each works campaign will have corresponded to the addition of a new volume, with an autonomous roof cover.
