Between classes, conferences, workshops (in architecture and architectural photography) I managed to keep practicing dance, as I consider it marked my way of thinking the space. In March 2013 I decided to move to London, where I am working as a freelancer and also looking for an international professional experience to dedicate and give my best to.

N o r o n h a

F e i o In 2009 I embrace an exchange program and moved to São Paulo, Brazil, where I have studied in Architecture and Urbanism College of University of São Paulo. During this period I had my first professional experience in Architecture at BFS Architects, where I focused mainly on residential projects.

The beauty of space as always attracted me. I still remember as if it was yesterday how the morning light crossed through the great windows in my dance studio at the Conservatory and how that touched me. This fascination led me in 2006 to Faculty of Architecture (FA) of Lisbon’s Technical University from where I have recently graduated with a master degree, with a final project and thesis entitled “Anonymous Architecture (re-thinking the surrounding area of the new Coach Museum)”.

A B O U T

I was born in October 1988, in Lisbon. I have grown up in an artistic and cultural environment that led me to the National Conservatory Dance School and after that to an Artistic School.

In BeTween * SHED, private house Independent project for N.Feio Design, London, 2013 This was my very first independent project. It was supposed to be a studio for a couple and the main idea was to be build by ourselves - me and them. With limited resources it should be built with second hand materials, like some bricks from earlier construction or recycled woods. and it had to be entirely dismantled. Besides that it is an experiment for me to put my hands on the construction. Conceptually we are talking about an archetype shelter that deals with the preexistent context and how that relationship creates an in-between space. A space in-between nature and it’s context and a shelter. This relationship eventually developed into two distinct working areas. This was a studio for a couple who lived in Hackney.

Rocking Tree* *CHEST OF DRAWERS Independent design for N.Feio Design, London, 2013

This is a project about the memories of a rocking tree... It all began when the old Chestnut tree on Mrs. Rosário propriety grew too old. On our first conversation didn’t took me long to understand that this was a meaningful tree and that the family wanted to do something special with its wood. They ask me straight to draw a chest of drawers that would go to the main living room of their cottage. My gift to them was a frame of ‘that’ imaged described to me in such nostalgic way of the trunk and the swing on the left side - and on that special sit I placed a secret compartment to contain their old memories.

Anonymous Architecture * REQUALIFICATION Project for master degree, FA-UTL, 2012 From the construction of the National Coach Museum’s new building comes the pretext for the discussion of Lisbon’s popular’s constructions rin it’s value and image. On behalf of Anonymous Architecture is presented a study that addresses the urbanity and typological construction remarkable by its topography and characterized by its history. The anonymous architecture reveals itself as a study of the ‘building on built’ that seeks solutions to this city. Solutions of transformation and adaptation to the needs of contemporary society, but also continuity solutions, continuity of the forms, memory, identity and all that that provides the landscape of Lisbon.

E Álvaro Siza about Chiado’s Recovery Plan, 1988, “A VERDADE IMPERCEPTIVEL DA BAIXA”

A

“(...) it has always overwhelmed me in Lisbon, the contrast between the fragmented and almost cubist urban structure, influenced by the Arabic culture, and the great constructions, the palaces. This duo determinates the intensity of the architectonic expression. There is no monument in this city without the anonymous continuity of multiple constructions: it’s about of complementary qualitative aspects. And however, in the city’s evolution, this construction’s role is being lost under the eyes of everybody. The generalized ambition for protagonism makes therefore impossible any kind of protagonism. (...)”

( existing building rehabilitation ) - housing -

In each type of operation was created a procedure method. For the housing rehabilitation only the outside shell should remain. After a reinforcement of concrete and a new back facade a ‘core’ would be introduced generating new and more flexible spaces more adequate for nowadays lifestyle.

For the new constructed houses there would be a concrete shell. In line with the previous houses a ‘core’ will be place (in I or T positions) in order to define and create space, always trying to maximize the living areas. The goal is to give high quality houses inside the city where so few live.

Vertical C i t i e s *PUBLIC EQUIPMENT IN LUZ-SP academic work, FAU-USP, 2010

Vertical cities is a project covering the historical area of S達o Paulo, Luz. For a freshly arrived foreigner, this place seems dark, dirty and chaotic at daylight and horribly silent during the night. Concerning the normative projects discipline, this proposal attempted to give itself to the city with a vast and uniform volume. Taking special attention to the facade, Vertical Cities was treated as it would be a lamp.

* INDUSTRY BUILDING REHABILITATION Project for competition, DESAFIOS URBANOS’12, 2013 in colaboration with Inês Martins, Rita Medina and Susana Ayres Stos

Responding to Guimarães nomination for European Capital of Culture several culture spots were created in the city: Arts Platform, ASA Factory, Memory House, among others. Those infrastructures will certainly attract new population groups for different periods of time: artists, students, professionals and their families. The proposal is called HOUSE IT and begins with the skeleton of a Tissue Factory (now deactivated) and fills it with houses that can be assembled and dissembled to answer the needs of this new population. The origin of the project is the maxim ‘easy building and by your own hands’. The existent buildings were maintained and the proposal only indicates small demolitions in order to clarify form and volume. The intervention would be flexible and mutable. Each floor of the antique factory would function as an appropriable open space in which the intervention only occurs in the interior facade and with the aperture of four skylights to illumination. Therefor the public would appropriate the building for all kind of activities and would progressively occupy it with the house containers. Industry turns obsolete. Obsolete turns Public. Public turns House. The main proposed program is housing although it is complemented by fixed functions: parking, storehouse, workshop, canteen, coffees and an extensive external public area that remains in all phases of construction. * interior facade

That is the motto for this proposal, aside you have a grid with prefabricated pieces of the proposal - room, facilities, shower, kitchen, extra rooms - and an example of the multiple possible combinations you can make with them. This combinations were developed in order to fit in the existing structure of the factory.
