|:||The Ribeira 11 building had several uses connected to industries and services during the 20th century. It is an eclectic building, composed of different parts and its main character consists in its proportion - a long and narrow piece - in the urban morphology of the landfill. The project preserved and reinforced this characteristic. It was preserved in its concrete structure and exterior expression. The new piece that fits in the existing design is a white steel frame, serial and light. This solution allows for unitary exterior expression and flexibility of interior modeling and typology variation. A new patio was introduced. The design characterizes the interior circulations with natural light and vegetation. The roof is made with masonic brick, to be perceived from Lisbon hills as a roof in continuity with surrounding rooftops. The Ribeira 11 can be described as a palimpsest.|
