Casa Altinho
by António Costa Lima Arquitectos

Francisco Nogueira

António Costa Lima Arquitectos has converted a former warehouse into a new home with a perforated brick shell along Lisbon's waterfront.

The project is called Casa Altinho, which means "High House", referencing the street's elevated position.

The design draws on the historic importance of the local warehouses by maintaining the existing structure and integrating it into the new design, instead of completely replacing it.

The three-storey home features a lattice-like brick volume that has been inserted into the stone shell of the warehouse, which has created a series of "in-between" terraces and voids.

The red-brick and original stone walls contrast the interiors, which are accented by dark wooden window frames and furniture.

This project has been longlisted in the residential rebirth project category of Dezeen Awards 2020.
