Building II in Setúbal


In a very quiet street in Setubal’s historical centre, next to Luisa Todi’s avenue, a plot that was once used by a night club, is to be replaced by a new building that relates, both in terms of volumetry and composition, with the rules that the City Hall established for the area, seeking a discrete integration in the evolving urban fabric.

Aiming at the residential use, the project includes 4 small apartments and an indoor parking area.

At the roof level, the proposal explores a less used typological solution, with the creation of a central courtyard surrounded by sloped roofs, in the manner of a roman Compluvium, around which develops the private residence of the building’s owner.
