The developer of this parcel with a refurbishment project from Prizker Laureat Architect Eduardo Souto de Moura, asked us to develop a proposal for the interior design of the lower levels for commerce.
The intervention in this building at Avenida da Liberdade 81, of three fronts, with a construction area of about 1.790 sqm, pretend to rehabilitate the building in its full and reorganize its interior in order to enable three different ways of being used: retail, restaurants and housing.
The project aims to create a commercial space of excellence that will occupy the entire ground floor and mezzanine floor.
In the proposal the commercial areas are not connected and so the access to the higher floors will be done through Praça da Alegria, taking advantage of the sloping ground.
Through time, the ground floor has been changed and mischaracterized. The project aims to restore the nobility and clearance of gaps, respecting the original language of the building.
