Located in the Western part of Lisbon, the new Ajuda Garden Residences development proposes to combine the natural with the urban in a green project distributed over five housing units. The concept follows two guiding principles: industrial memory, transposed in a non-literal way to the proposed design with a minimalist modular solution reinterpreting the logic of a warehouse; and integration, in which the constructed volumes are harmoniously materialised within the pre-existing urban fabric, dignifying the whole in relation to nearby buildings. The various sections of the complex are distributed within a common garden, offering a form of living of excellence.
In terms of usability, the aim was to include a total of 45 apartments on the site, ranging from lofts to T4-type residences, offering shared and family housing options. Inside, functionality, solar orientation and spatial optimisation were prioritised by means of small circulation areas and a flexible layout. The development is also endowed with large glass panes framed by balconies, offering panoramic views over the Tagus River and promoting a smooth transition between the designed natural fabric and the built landscape.
