My Portfolio spans across a wide range of projects and design strategies.

Conversion of an Office into a Flat, Celorico da Beira, Portugal

According to this diversity it is important to acknowledge that each project, following my academic formation and 5th Studio Architets (my first employer) phyilosophy, intents to be grounded in the particular conditions of each project and site, valuating and taking into advantage the addition of specific intellectual capital.

It is this intended intelectual capital that will ensure that architecture won’t reduces itself to a pure aesthetic enjoyment or a simple commercialized production. The diversity of architectural and urban projects and programs with which I’ve been involved reinforces the capacity to tackle any challenge and project opportunity with functional and aesthetic objectivity.

Park Royal Public Realm Strategy

@ 5th Studio _ London, England

Client: Park Royal Partnership + Design for London + Transport for London + Brent, Ealing and Hammersmith & Fulham Boroughs Concept Development + Analysis + Presentation Drawings West London, United Kingdom

some pages of the final report

Park Royal is an area of 700 hectares which constitutes Europe’s largest industrial estate. Located halfway between Heathrow and Central London, it plays a key role in the city’s strategic service and employment system. But Park Royal is a victim of its own success as ‘London’s Workshop’ – with a congested road network and a low quality public realm presenting challenges to its thriving economy.

Gateways

In the context of these problems, 5th Studio were commissioned by Park Royal Partnership and Design for London to develop a public realm strategy that could achieve a radical uplift in the environmental quality of the area. Given the impossibility of comprehensive change on this vast scale, the proposals offer a tactical response which considers how to maximize the impact of investment – a strategy of targeted intervention. The strategy articulates a clear spatial reading of Park Royal as a place – which begins by understanding it as a distinct city quarter defined by a perimeter wall of transport infrastructure – in order to guide the geographical logic of proposals. Working with a ‘toolkit’ of tactics to establish a useful commonality across a range of interventions – from big-scale moves to bottom-up local projects – it proposes a spectrum of projects within three spheres of action: network, gateways and districts.

London’s Workshop

Key points of entry to Park Royal, coincident with rail and underground stations, where the infrastructure that establishes it as a distinct territory is crossed. The proposed interventions seek to strengthen the identity of Park Royal and the sense of its boundary by reinforcing the unique qualities of these edge spaces.

Network

The ‘network’ describes a series of road corridors that are almost the only way to traverse Park Royal. The strategy proposes to improve their functional operation, safety and spatial quality through the integration of a system of off-road cycle paths and a consistent materiality – as well as seeking to maximise use of the Grand Union Canal.

Districts

The proposals operate selectively in the space between two extreme definitions of the public realm: buildings and road infrastructure.

Project Matrix - a series of distinct projects ordered geographically within 3 primary spheres of intervention: network + gateways + districts

A series of distinct pieces of urban fabric whose diversity is critical to the economic operation and urban character of Park Royal. To support this richness of place, and fit with the reality of what would make sense on the ground, the strategy proposes a number of small-scale interventions which respond to specific local conditions.


CROSSRAIL - Abbey Wood Interchange

@ 5th Studio _ London, England

Client: Crossrail Partnership

Concept Development + Analysis + Presentation Drawings Abbey Wood, Southeast London, United Kingdom As part of a team led by Marks Barfield, 5th Studio worked on one of the first Crossrail station studies - the interchange at Abbey Wood, the Southeastern terminus of Crossrail, in London. 5th Studio’s role in this study was to develop a coherent plan for the station area, developing a public realm which ensures positive connection between a new multi-level station, and a better streetscape, creating positive connections for both residents and visitors to this new end of line location. 5th Studio’s project team also contribute to the emerging picture of local regeneration and developmental change, ensuring that this new grain contributes positively to an excellent and integrated new transport hub at Abbey Wood.

Concept Design + Planning Application + Construction Drawings Wapping, London, United Kingdom This 2 million pounds flat extension and refurbishment consists in a challenging between preserving the listed brick building, once a tea warehouse, and accommodating the requirements of the clients luxurious lifestyle. The extension consists on the junction of two flats on top of the building and explore new ways to take advantage of the massive terrace and its riverside location. The large majority of the architectural solutions were comprised between a mediation, technically and aesthetically, of brick, wood, glass and slate blending the new design with the existing building.

The constructions was happening simultaneously to the design process which lead to a very intense process but at the same time very profitable in terms of experience, manly because the design team was dealing with all the constrains of an intervention in a listed old building (full of surprises and technical challenges).

@ 5th Studio _ London, United Kingdon

Client: Muslim Academic Trust - Competition

Concept Design + Presentation Drawings + Models Cambridge, United Kingdom The project aims to define a contemporary language for mosque building in Britain that responds to the urban and local cultural context as well as to internationally recognised ‘types’. 5th Studio have proposed a series of linked spaces that move from the street (with a cafe and gardens for before and after prayers, and for street market and public events) to a more private rear garden court. These two key external spaces are linked by an internal ‘souk’ which orchestrates the entry into the main prayer hall, the leaving of shoes and ritual ablution. Whilst the plan form of the building is derived from the geometry of the site and boundaries, the roof forms are orthogonal to the quibla and the Mecca orientation of the main prayer hall: the difference between these generate the unique form of the building. The proposal uses local brick, a random array of which might be gilded - increasing in density towards a solid golden crown. aerial view d

Low Carbon Housing

@ 5th Studio _ London, England

Client: Olive Green Developments

Concept Design + Planning Application St. Ives, United Kingdom This project consists on 7 low-carbon dwellings on a small site in St. Ives. The houses will be built to the extremely rigourous Passiv-haus standards, representing current best practice for low-energy dwellings within continental Europe, and will meet Level 5 of the Code for Sustainable Homes. Located on the outskirts of the town, the site is currently occupied by a single bungalow, and borders onto a public open space at its rear. In the context of proposals for a new guided bus route, which will greatly improve the public transport accessibility of this location, the scheme proposes a development of much greater density. Taking the terraced house – an urban typology – as its starting point, the design explores how to integrate a scheme of this density within its distinctly ordinary and sub-urban context through its configuration and architectural language. The ensemble of buildings structure a series of communal spaces between front (street) and rear (recreation ground) – with each house afforded a small and highly private walled garden / patio space, but benefiting from access to communal allotments and views to the open space beyond. The houses are expressed as a ‘big roof’ – a taut skin of timber cladding, flush glazing, and integrated photovoltaics – sitting on top of a brick plinth which forms the private patios to the rear of each house.

View from the rear – the houses border onto an existing recreation ground. Shared allotments mediate between this public space and the private walled gardens belonging to each house.

View from the street – the ensemble of buildings create a parking court at the front of the site which engages with the broad landscape of the road.

The basic house type exploits a split-level section in order to create spatial interest and generosity, and to help create a south-facing roof pitch housing a solar panel installation.

Study model Site plan showing the series of interlinked communal spaces between the street and the recreation ground to the rear.

Left Two blocks joined by a wide gallery; the external gallery is punctuated by voids to improve daylighting and to hold public circulation away from kitchen windows which face onto the space. Right Small lightwells offer spatial quality and environmental benefit to the communal spaces within a more compact typology.

This trailblazing project in Fairfield Road, Bow, will provide market-viable zero-carbon housing. The project will provide 50-60 apartments - with a mix of sizes from studio to 3-bed - to meet 5* standards under the Code for Sustainable Homes. The energy required to heat, light and ventilate these flats will be provided by on-site renewable production - comprising photovoltaic and solar-thermal cells, supplemented by a biomass boiler. Rainwater harvesting and grey-water recycling will reduce water usage. To mitigate the effects of climate change and the potential increased demand for summer cooling, the building will incorporate significant thermal mass achieved through the use of a concrete frame, with areas of exposed soffits within the flats. The project has undergone a number of iterations as it seeked to reconcile the often competing demands of sustainability, affordability and density with respect to both development economics and the (local and regional) planning context. On the drawing-board there was a 60-unit scheme exploring how to build at high levels of density and efficiency, but with moments of spatial quality - using small ‘pocket’ courtyards and shared roof terraces - that can provide focus and identity to the development as well as environmental benefit.

Below A trio of ‘houses’ on the street, interlinked by access cores and corridors, are used to create corner aspect flats with private balconies occupying the zones between the houses.

Left The dense urban location and the nature of the site make reaching Code Level 5 a difficult but worthwhile challenge. Above The modelling of the building envelope makes it a highly productive surface – housing solar panels to generate heat and electricity, and roof gardens to encourage local food growing.

Portuguese school renovation program

Concept Design + Planning Application Trofa, PORTUGAL

The Modernization Program of High Schools in Portugal had as fundamental architectural objective to recover and upgrade buildings, fostering a culture of learning and knowledge dissemination through interventions that will fix problems of existing buildings; improve living conditions and environmental comfort, with particular emphasis on thermal and acoustic conditions, air quality, safety and accessibility; modernize the respective technical equipment’s; ensure flexibility and adaptability of academic and non-academic areas, in order to maximize utilization and minimize investment in the future; ensure the energy efficiency of buildings in order to reduce operating costs. This particular School was designed with the objective that the new constructions would meet the formal language of the pre-existing buildings. The main feature of these new areas concerned the union of all the school facilities, providing the students to move along without the need of leaving the premises. This requirement allows the unification of an incoherent space, creating new outdoor spaces and specific relations with the indoor areas.

This project consists on the extension of a Barn and a Sheep Shed and on the addition of a Millking Parlour as a part of a Milk and Cheese Production Farm. The project was largely conditioned by the existent constructions (the central volume), by topography and by budgetary constraints. The final solution is a compromise between minimal volumetric impact (the proposal is developed in three levels and following the slope of the land), greatly simplified construction techniques (according to the available budget and construction techniques available on site) and a functional coordination of the program.

plan

This low area & low impact design is intended to be built in a National Park and Ecological Reserve and aimed primarily at eco-tourism. More than a simple architecture project it is associated with a business strategy in which the architectural project and the built Cabin consist in a single product. Its purpose is to be sold as a package product, intended to be self-constructed by the buyer with technical consultation from the architect. Upon request the architect can provide, through a partnership, the construction of the cabin. The prototype presented consists in a bedroom unit + living space with a stove, primarily aimed for daily rent to be explored by local residents as a complementary business to their daily activity. This unit can also be suitable for owners who would like to have their own mountain cabin. All the materials, apart from the insulation ones, are intended to be from ecological local production (timber, foundation stones, roof tiles), increasing local economy and lowering carbon footprint.

Country House + Farming Facilities

Independent Architect _ oPorto, Portugal

Client: Gonçalo Morgado

Concept Design + Construction Details

under development

Celorico da Beira, Portugal This family house consists of two standardized timber modular structure volumes, plus a few complementary constructions (garage, barbecue and farming shed) to be built in traditional Portuguese masonry. The client demanded a low cost timber house with a swimming pool and a Landscape strategy for the whole terrain which combined seasonal farming activity with the quietness of countryside garden, developed for different specific proposes, but not segregated. The house’s timber structure is extremely simple and light, easily assembled by local workers and in a short period of time. The timber and the granite masonry play aims to reinterpret the archetype of the local buildings while simultaneously highlights modernist inspiration through strictly orthogonal volumes displayed on the terrain.

Professors: Adalberto Dias, Pedro Ramalho, Alves Costa, José Quintão The project corresponds to the hybrid nature of the site (a big variety of occupations, scales, uses and a new and eminent element: speed.) The contact of the site with the accesses to the motorway (one of Porto’s main access - Arrábida) creates a strong opposition to fluidity, generating big scars in the urban tissue and allowing/requiring different perceptions of the project. The project centres itself in a main iconic building (the main auditorium) creating an urban reference in this ambiguous environment. The project allows simultaneously a view of the Douro valley and a hushed square, lower than the street level and away from traffic.

As an opposition to the mixture of different networks, ways, and paths, this new structure has a very strict composition, in what is related to his central part – an 80 m wide boulevard-park – that runs into the hill. It’s a geometrical space that articulates all the buildings and functions. It’s a flexible and flat space design to hold all different kinds of ideas and installations, and with the possibility to be easily changed and adapted to new uses or circumstances. Site Plan

The intervention consists in a multi-cultural structure with two auditoriums and a large exhibition area facing the city from the river bank. It creates also a unique riverbank in Prague providing new ways of relating to the river. It is complemented with a structure of complementary functions as offices, shopping and leisure areas.

Analysis

Prague, Czech Republic

My proposal consists in the construction of buildings that can attract and contain people among the entire day (hotel, students dormitory, offices, shops and collective housing) with a multifunctional purpose. The new structure allows penetration from the riverbank in to the dense urban consolidated tissue. The strategy is divided into two purposes: requalification of pedestrian paths in the consolidated structure and the construction facing the river.

We intended to intervene, not in the urban fabric but outside of this, outside of the consolidated city. We searched an answer at a territorial level - at the scale of the metropolitan area – capable of unite Lisbon’s metropolitan area. Being like this, we concentrated all the dock activity in a specific nuclear point. The place found for the implementation of the same one was, literally, the estuary. Quickly we realize the potential of his location – through its visibility became inevitable the creation of an iconic object and reference point.

Other Interests Photography, Drawing, Traveling Photography arises simultaneously as a way to register what one see’s and as a way to investigate and to discover new perspectives about places, people, things and situations. Photography conjugates a temporal characteristics (temporal vs atemporal) that reveal the confrontation between what a situation is versus what will never be again in the same support allowing us to question time and space. Free Hand Drawing is fundamental to develop design ideas into coherent proposals, to communicate ideas and concepts, and as a powerful tool to explain the merits of a design. Several different techniques of Urban landscape drawing are powerful means to proper understand the mentioned urban and architectural spaces as well as to practice and to advance on the understand of scale and proportion. To travel provides the opportunity to see, to photograph, to draw - to understand.
