Text description provided by the architects. The intervention consists on the rehabilitation of an old housing build from the end of the XIX century, inserted in the historic district of Bairro Alto in Lisbon. With a gross area of 650m2 spread over 4 floors and a garden with 250m2.
The building was in an advanced state of degradation requiring a deep intervention.
The patrimonial evaluation established that the main facade, the side walls and the inner staircase were the notable elements to keep.
The strategy for the rehabilitation was taken in order to establish a dialogue between the restored elements and the new structure.
