D. João V

D. João V – Description / text

This housing building located between Rato and Amoreiras, in Lisbon, maintains its original configuration at 60 years of age. The current owner wants to raise the building’s profitability and for that he commissioned us a feasibility study for its renovation and extension.

We developed 2 fundamentally distinct scenarios: a first scenario of minimum works at minimum cost and a second scenario of comprehensive works at a higher cost and a much higher payback. For both scenarios we tested apartment type “remixes” - we converted the existing floors with large symmetrical apartments in floors with apartments of various sizes and configurations – and analysed the implications of adapting the existing construction to current circulation, parking, fire safety, acoustic insulation and building services standards.
