José Adrião Arquitecto: Fanqueiros – Thisispaper Magazine
The intervention aimed for the adaptation and refurbishment of a “Pombalino” building, turning it into a short term rental unit. Located in the heart of the historical area of Baixa, in Lisbon, the building sits at the corner of Rua dos Fanqueiros and Rua da Conceição. Since its construction in the late 18th century, there has been a great deal of changes and modifications that deeply modified the original character of its fractions. As project strategy and as a way of reducing costs, the decision was made to accept its existing heterogeneous character.
