Oriente Complex

The Oriente Complex is a residential development in Parque das Nações that resulted from the merger into one single plot of two housing cooperatives and their differing programmes for residences, offices and shops. Located at what was once the nerve centre of the Expo ’98 site, the complex is on Avenida dos Oceanos close to the Portuguese Pavilion by Álvaro Siza and Carrilho da Graça’s Museum of Science. First occupied by themed pavilions, the complex site was already earmarked as a later mixed-use block in the consolidated urban area – its present-day condition. Conceived as a formulation of mediation spaces between the public and the private, the housing block generates a semi-closed courtyard, allowing for public access to the apartments. The U-shaped office area creates a large public space in the void. The offices, restaurants and cafés produce a constant flow of public movement.
