Not available in this edition

Located in Praça do Príncipe Real, this is a landmark project by Eduardo Souto de Moura, the only example of a residential building’s restoration of his authorship in Lisbon. Erected in the late 19th century to be a single-family house, it was later adapted to work as a hospital through an intervention that altered the building’s original architecture. The current project wished to restore its value with the rehabilitation of materials and construction techniques. Moreover, the project stepped up in what concerns technical and regulatory requirements and standards, namely structural, acoustic, safety and accessibility conditions, allowing for high-efficiency use. With one flat per floor, the building has a basement on the side facing Príncipe Real, and that level corresponds to the ground floor on the rear facade of Travessa do Abarracamento de Peniche. An autonomous housing unit was built on this other side, replacing the annexed structure initially built to store coaches and the respective animals.
