Text description provided by the architects. The project in the old glass factory “Gaivotas” has brought to it an innovative program: the first student residence in the enter of historic Lisbon. With an innovative program, this project, in an old glass factory, brought to the historic center of Lisbon its first student residence. Some of the factory’s elements with significant value, but largely destroyed, were refurbished - the façade of Fernando Tomas Street and the old brick chimney - and a new core was built.

The implantation of the new volumes, in dialogue with it’s surrounding context, results in two buildings: one that pops up  behind the pre-existing façade, and another that connects - with an L shape - to the back of the plot, the “beco do carrasco” alley. Around this second building, arise landscaped courtyards where the social functions are faced.

The existing façade, sustained and attached to a metallic structure, is assumed as a mask, which hides a second skin, designed according to the metric of the new interior spaces. The tiles, a portuguese tradicional coating material, was chosen to apply in this historical façade.

Inside the plot, the building emerges with a corrugated metal sheet coating material - reference to an industrial past -  giving a singular environment to the patios.
