Carpintarias de São Lázaro

  • Interventions:
  • ARC Carpintarias de São Lázaro
  • (2018 (reab.))

This building housed an industrial carpentry since 1929 and is located at the Rua de São Lázaro, a winding road that bridges the gap between Martim Moniz and Desterro. In the interior spaces, the intervention reveals a structure in concrete and keeps the wide spans to the west and to the slopes of Mouraria and Graça. The main entrance is between floor -1 and floor 0 and the access to the mezzanine and the roof is made through the white volume of a metal spiral staircase, that stands out from the raw concrete. The Carpentries of São Lázaro is a multidisciplinary Cultural Centre, open to the city and focused on the contemporary. It showcases projects from the areas as diverse as the visual and performing arts, music, cinema and gastronomy, and has a philosophy of integration through culture and knowledge. The aim of this project is to add a complementary place to the existing cultural scene of Lisbon. Its ambitious and avant-garde program fosters creativity, innovation and multidisciplinary crossovers to bring people, communities and knowledge closer together.
