Rehabilitation of a 100 years old apartment into CAS studio

Our studio is located in the heart of Santa Catarina’s historic neighborhood in Lisbon.It’s a building with more than 100 years old that suffered different interventions in time, most of them negative. Our work was to design a reinforcement structure and build a complete new flexible space.

Like a “complete art process” that lasted 12 months, where we participated as architects, artisans and builders from design to the construction. It was an experimental process to test new sustainable technologies based on earth and wood.

This space will integrate our vision that fuses architecture with design and contemporary handicraft in a sustainable process. It’s a space to design and expose our work.
