Family Houses [Semi] Detached Houses 2013 Sarilhos - Corte Real


This project offers a different way of living inside Lisbon’s Metropolitan Area. It is inserted in one of its councils on the South side of Tagus River. These two houses are placed on a touristic and housing enterprise. The houses are distributed in two plots with areas over 3.000m2. Each one can be independent for horticultural production. One of the main concerns about the houses location was keeping as many as possible the existing trees, conjugating them with the landscape and surrounding. The project idea is that these two houses harmonize with the surrounding landscape and passing unnoticed as possible for those in the road. In this way, the exterior space was divided into five areas. The first one is an orchard that is in both houses at the front to give more privacy and security to their habitants. There is a part of the parcels that stay in their natural state. Besides these areas there is a small kitchen-garden, a garden and a leisure area more private on the South side of the houses with a pool and a wood pergola for shading. Aggregation

The concept regarding the living areas was to divide the house in three parts: motor (kitchen and sanitary areas), public and private. In this way the motor is in the North side, the private areas in the South of the house and the public part is perpendicular to these two, closing the living functions. Therefore it is possible appreciate the light and landscape that exists on the South. Semi-Detached Houses Plant

On the South part, the house works as a space where sometimes are mixed inside and outside areas. On the ground floor there is a transition space between bedrooms and living room with the exterior. This space is in wood and maintains the interior level. In the first floor, where is one extra room, there is a terrace turned to South. One of the main characteristics of the house is the light that receives with game with different plans at different depths. The colors and materials used are characteristics from the region. Besides their technical characteristics, they were combined to reinforce the different prospect plans. With this combination, the houses gain texture and light. House Structure Concept

Despite being considered semi detached houses, the idea is that each one has its own individuality. The combination of this factor with local conditions causes the lag between the houses and the different colors used in each.

Council Masterplan Urban Development for Montijo Team coordinated by Prof. Sidónio Pardal Arch. Luís Cerqueira Arch. Hélder Coelho Eng. Sónia Lampreia Urb. António Santos Geog. Miguel Nascimento Geog. Francisco Cardoso


This work aims to define of a territorial organization through urban planning for the development of Montijo, one of Lisbon’s metropolitan area councils. In this metropolitan area, was the third that most grew up in the last decade. Montijo has 348,4Km2 and is one of the few in Portugal that is divided in two parts geographically separated. In this case are a parted around 20km. It’s located South of Tagus river and the main part of this territory consists of the riverfront land. Montijo West connect the two harbours through the new bridge (Vasco da Gama’s Bridge) and highway. Montijo East is connected to Lisbon by the oldest bridge in the metropolitan area and it’s connected with North a highway and one of the main roads between the North and the South of Portugal. Montijo has always been the connection between Lisbon and Spain, where the main road to do this cross also connect the two parts of the council. Montijo West is integrated at the first ring around Lisbon, Riverine Arc South, which has the first level importance to turn the Tagus Estuary the centre of this metropolitan area. The East part is dominated by forest and agricultural lands. Montijo Inside Lisbon’s Matropolitan Area

The concept to organize the territory and its development is divide in territorial units which depends what uses exists. A group of uses determines what territorial unit will be developed, whether they will be urban, sylvan or agricultural. An aggregation of several territorial units origins a class which is decided by the uses on it. The classes of soil use can be urban or rural, it depends if they have more and bigger urban areas, sylvan or agricultural areas grouped in it territorial units. This concept is the result of an investigation work from university (Lisbon Technical University) and Montijo urban department. Is the first council in Portugal where this concept is applied. The idea is to turn Montijo in a case study, where the theory developed in the last decades is applied in reality. S.

MONTIJO WEST - Urban perimeter - occupy the expectant spaces inside of urban perimeter, consolidate and stitch the existing urban tissue Four areas

- Expansion areas - the City Hall will program the available areas to urban expansion through several plans. Most of them will stay with an open program to be adapted according to the needs. - Agricultural areas - urbanizations and land division are forbidden - Military Base - occupies a big part of this territory and has its own autonomy.

MONTIJO EAST - Agricultural areas - the two main territorial units. Improve the silvan and agricultural activities; - Sylvan areas -

forbidden the division of the property and contain the dispersed construction.

- Urban perimeter - to consolidate and to receive new constructions Five areas

- Expansion areas - mainly to close the urban perimeters and to reinforce them has a place to habitat in this council’s side. - Airport Reserv - where are projected the high-speed rail service (TGV) to connect Lisbon with Europe and the new Lisbon airport which will shelter in its perimeter several industries, hotels and logistics related with these connections systems.


PLANNING AND MANAGEMENT OPERATIVE UNITS The delimitation of these units over the areas for urban expansions avoids the lack of control on the last decades regarding the new residence urbanizations that have provoked an uncharacterized city and disconnected between itself. It fits to the City Hall the responsibility to decide where and when it is going to happen the future city’s expansions and project and plan them. In this way returns to the City Hall the capacity to decide how, when and where is going to be the new residence and economics expansions and developments. It returns to the municipality the decision about the expansion of the urban perimeter and it which measure.

Urban Voids Suture the City Temporary Residence FAUTL 12.2011 Lisbon - Belém Prof. José Aguiar Prof. Pedro Pacheco


Lisbon it’s a city, that despite of thousands of workers and students that receive daily, doesn’t offer the conditions so that they can become inhabitants. However presents a lots of urban voids that need to be requalified and return to them an “active” role in the city. The concept to this proposal consists in “urban acupuncture” through requalification and integration of these spaces in the city’s urban tissue. This project is focused in Lisbon’s waterfront because it’s one of the city areas where is more clear the disqualification, the constant presence of urban voids, abandoned spaces, without any kind of use. It is proposed using as hinge spaces between the city and the river, allowing create or strengthen this connections where now doesn’t exist or it’s weak. Lisbon’s Waterfront Urban Voids

Expectant Spaces


Currently there are several obstacles to use properly Lisbon’s waterfront, such as the connection between city and waterfront and the physical barriers remaining between city and river. The use of urban voids located here, respond to these assumptions and also bring new uses and equipments that complements the existing needs.

Intervention Masterplan


Only acting simultaneously in this set of “expectant spaces” is possible to produce a strong effect and change in the city. The intervention doesn’t acts only in these spaces in particular but also involves the requalification of the surrounding streets. The proposal focuses on the urban void left by the relocation of FIL (Lisbon Exhibition Fair) to Parque das Nações in the East side of the city. It is inserted on a disqualified area but with lots of potential for different uses like tourism, university facilities or conference centre. Conceptually the idea is to keep this space with plenty of empty areas, as a memory of what was and as breathing space in the city, making a transition between the densest North area and the South area that it’s practically construction free. This free space that remains is public and open to all in contrast to what happens today with these expectant spaces, which are mostly sealed. The proposed public space focuses in discovering the different spaces as you walk through the permeability of the buildings. The proposal integrates with the existing urban tissue, giving continuity to the surroundings, serving as a connection point between the city and the waterfront.


This proposal seeks to integrate different uses in the block in order to reach more people and having activities along all day, trying to do a mix between private and public uses and investments. In more detail is developed the built on the west side of the block regarding temporary housing, possible to be used by students, teachers, tourists, among others.

This residence project consists to open the ground floor to several uses beyond their own residence and hostel, enabling greater interaction between users of this and the surrounding area. The concept used in the residence is the large opening and interaction between the various levels and areas of the same, always showing lots of natural light and ventilation even in passage areas, which in turn, also work as living areas.

About the tectonics, the main material is concrete. This is used for the structure and for the facades. Besides concrete, is used a system of yellow prefabricated ceramic panels applied through ventilated facade system. The color used in these panels serves not only to give more light and transmit energy to the block but also to reinforce the connection with the surroundings. Detailed Residence’s South Prospect

Structural Routes Primary School IUAV 07.2010 Padova Prof. Fernanda de Maio Prof. Chiara Tosi


The challenge introduce in this semester was to create an urban system for the city, involving the block placed South to Prato della Valle, from Foro Boario to the Apiani Stadium, where it would be designed a new elementary school. After a first analysis of the city it was noticed the existence of “expectant spaces� set on the South side of the town and around the walls. From this point it was created a cycling and pedestrian urban system that connecting these spaces. In this system it was proposed the reconversion of the urban voids into several typologies that would complement the needs existing in the city, making an urban acupuncture intervention, in order to revitalize the surrounding urban fabric. This pathways system allows a fast and secure connection between the new spaces. Another goal was to be able to keep the relation with the historical walls, an older urban system, by creating new areas alongside them, where there are several green and leisure spaces.

In more detail was developed the proposal concerning the block. The program consisted in a set of activities that work together with the new school. The concept of this intervention is based on the analysis of the existing flows. Also the existing velodrome is kept and adapted it to new functions, combining the new and existing geometries with the modulation of the ground, in order to keep the sensation of “emptiness” in where the city can “breathe.”

The building developed in greater detail is thought to students from 3rd grade to 6th grade, placed in the southern corner on the block. The project is developed on “L” shaped volume, on two floors. In the ground floor are the classrooms and upstairs, in the first floor, are teacher’s rooms and classes with specific topics such as informatics and art. The upper floor works as mezzanine, so there is always visual communication between the two floors.

The facades have several colors in degrade scheme, transmitting more energy and making it easier for students to identify where is their respective classroom, because between two colors is always a gateway between the building and the courtyard.


The playground is divided into three different zones: the first one of conviviality and play with several shaded and resting areas, the second one with toys and swings, and the third one related to the space outside each classroom, where you can perform different activities in the school scope because all classrooms on the ground floor have direct access to outside.

Water City or Land City? Marghera Watercity - New Venice IUAV 01.2010 Venice - Marghera Prof. Alberto Cechetto Prof. Aldo Aymonino


The challenge in this project was to create a new Venice: Venice of the year 2100. The intervention site is located in the industrial pole of Venice-Mestre in Marghera. This area is based in a landfill created for these industries and the goal presented is to consider what could happen in an hypothetical scenario where the industry disappeared from this location. This would allow the creation of a new “water city� with ca. 4km2, where we would apply the same principles as the historical Venice island, but reported to the XXII century. The starting point was to understand which parts of this island could be important. The places where this relation was more intensive generate the city centre, working as the main spine of the island. Considering that this project creates an urban tissue from scratch, one of the main ideas was to maintain and reconvert some of the existing buildings in order to maintain the identity and relation to what currently exists, at its past. The main concerns inherent in this new city were the public space, the creation of a public transportation system of the island with its surroundings and Venice, the creation of a green and pedestrian system and road traffic.

Strategic Points


This new Venice required the creation of water channels, serving not only for leisure and relief of the city, but also as a means of transport and connection to the island of Venice, being able to keep one of the main characteristics of Venice, the water as a main feature for everyday life. These proposed channels work as the skeleton of the city’s new urban tissue, being wider or narrower according to the role of the channel.

Facilities for Erasmus Students Study and Administration Equipament FAUTL 07.2008 Lisbon - Santos Prof. Carlos Macedo


This project aimed the definition of an architecture proposal that allows to host students in the Socrates / Erasmus scholarship program in Lisbon. The plot is located in a central area of the city, near some universities and an important intermodal node. The first step was to propose an architecture masterplan composed by four physically separate buildings, each of which hosting a specific function: residence; leisure and social activities; administration and study and, association and exhibition area. The four buildings together are 3300m2. The intervention site has two main limitations. The first one is the existing building on the western side of the block that implies a significant blind facade turned to the interior of the plot in consideration. The second constraint is the avenue that passes along the southern limit of the intervention area, which is one of the main and busiest avenues of Lisbon. This street is a route that crosses the city, parallel to the Tejo river and has more than 10 traffic lanes, parking rows and line train.


The solution proposed to these requirements consists in the concept of a mesh that suffers a metamorphosis throughout the plot. This mesh combines three directions existing on the site with their perpendicular, in order to link with surrounding and promote better integration in the existing context. At the same time the mesh is used to create the scheme of voids and volumes leading to the location of the new meeting places in this area.

After the group stage, the building developed into further detail was the one holding study areas, administration offices, library and several breakout rooms. In this building the grid created for the masterplan works also as main concept. The builing comes from this block mesh, and is taken to the inside, being used to configurate the distribution of the different programmes. The mesh is taken to the last consequences, be using it to form the geometry of the building, being able to have a total relation with the block and the other buildings of the masterplan.

Considering the geometry of the proposal for the block volumes and areas required for various uses, it was decided to divide the building into three parts. The first one is the northern part of the building with the library, the second the atrium/foyer, works as a transition space and the third is in South, where are all the other existing functions, from the administration spaces to study rooms. In order not to create a large space division it was chosen to keep strong visual contact between different floors and rooms, by the configurating several mezzanine floors.
