Graça 117 is one of the rehabilitation projects that contributed to the valorization and preservation of the Graça’s street urban unity, in Lisbon, as a part of a set of buildings with history.
Like many buildings in Lisbon, this intervention required a general restructuring, with architectural features’ recovery, respect for pre-existing references, and reformulation of housing layout.
For the housing concept, it was designed seven small T0 apartments for a short stay functional and suitable for this purpose.
On the ground floor, the commercial store space was maintained to preserve the spirit and sounds of the neighbourhood. As an integral part of the street profile, it was chosen a singular colour for the main façade – navy blue –creates a chromatic rhythm on this urban front.
