The project’s main goal was to connect the two autonomous apartments on the top floor of a building in the Lapa district of Lisbon. The building – comprising a basement, 3 floors and an attic with a single fraction per floor – was built in the last decade of the 19th century. The main floor’s original layout, like most of them at that time in Lisbon, still has a continuous row of rooms that allows for different functions.
