Saraiva & Associados / AM48 CAPITAL, S.A
The design aims to respect the identity of this place, restoring the balance and unity of the site and thus transform it into an area where past and present coexist. It is intended that the exterior spaces have a distinctive contemporary garden image, with three typologies of distinct areas according to their function: the courtyard (key area of the project, covering the main entrances of the residential complex), the church garden (in the extension of the architectural program) and the private gardens.
-Preservation of the old Convent
-Space restructuration, with a large courtyard area for appropriation by its users
-Contemporary image: layout, vegetation, water features and proposed materials
-Staircase that makes connection between the street level Camilo Castelo Branco and Santa Marta street
