Palácio Nacional da Ajuda
The intervention aims to rehabilitate and restore the East/North Wing of Palácio Nacional da Ajuda.
The three main rooms – currently known as ‘salas do tesouro’ – which face the main façade, will be renovated so that they can be visited and host exhibitions and events.
The rest of the intervention area will be remodeled and will be used for the reserve that is currently in the three ‘salas do tesouro’.
The main aim of the project is to safeguard the architectural heritage of the spaces and at the same time adapt them to new uses.
They will be rehabilitated in such a way as to restore the nobility that is intrinsic to their elements.
The intervention in the Palace respects the existing elements of the architectural heritage and highlights the visual framework of the existing stonework, shutters and windows, with the exception of the alteration/replacement of some openings with technical solutions identical to the originals. This project will restore the nobility and dignity of the spaces, as well as recovering the most artistically valuable elements of the interior.
