OFFICE BUILDING lisbon . portugal
commission . completed

The program was simple, an office building under study and a shopping area at the ground floor. The area of the project is highly uncharacteristic, marked by empty industrial buildings and residual spaces.

The building relates to its surroundings, the volume squirms and reacts to it, causing through glass surfaces triangulated hyperbolic paraboloid type, distorted reflections and stratified surroundings, transforming the reflection of the disqualified surrounding close to a cubist painting.

The interior open space type offices are occasionally interrupted by vertical glass volumes that disrupt the building, directing the lighting for even the most interior spaces. The large terrace in the roof with bar represents the moment of leisure for all who work in this building, a vital element in achieving a good working environment.

Briefly, a building with an origin purely conventional, glass, concrete and light that gets adopted by the shape contours of innovation and creativity, but also complexity.
