AB+AC Architects has created a cultural space in Lisbon dedicated to promoting innovation and self-healing through the arts.
The project is an experiential centre for conscious gatherings, holistic learning and co-creation. The design sees a dark commercial unit turned into a space of light that evokes calmness and positive thinking.
The sequence of rooms flows from a public saloon to a convivial zone where the kitchen extends to an intimate patio. In between is a lounge space with diffused lighting that provides an ideal environment for exhibitions.
Flexibility and adaptability are conveyed with custom solutions such as hidden storage or continuous curtains to create multiple configurations for activities spanning dance, yoga and meditation, to art events, workshops and screenings.
