Designed in collaboration with a bold and informed client who likes to be hands on with all that carries her signature, Joana Rosa's role was to support, and facilitate the free-flow of concepts, and assist in their technical realisation. This engine room in the heart of leafy Principe Real, central Lisbon, demanded a clear vision and a unique identity. Aesthetic appeal had to be married with practicality. Spaces had to be multi-functional, and elegant, while retaining as much of the originality of the building as possible. A cascade of mirrors catwalk's you down the shop. On the top floor a painterly like atmosphere unfolds around the activities within. This project is yet another marriage between a careful conservation of the old and audacious intervention of the new.
