Residential Architecture: Cais da Fontinha Residence by Alexandre Burmester Arquitectos Associados: “..the buildings were highly dilapidated and only the walls and structures have been renovated. The renovation project for the buildings entailed their reconstruction and maintenance as a way of preserving the quality of the construction and merging them into their surroundings. The main goal of the plan was to take advantage of the buildings, by reinventing their forms and making the most of their location..the buildings were highly dilapidated and only the walls and structures have been renovated. The renovation project for the buildings entailed their reconstruction and maintenance as a way of preserving the quality of the construction and merging them into their surroundings. The main goal of the plan was to take advantage of the buildings, by reinventing their forms and making the most of their location..”  Very interesting renovation, refurbishment, repurposing,  and elaboration for this mixed-use residential project; respect for traditional materials, form and fenestration, with the integration, and addition,  of contemporary purpose, practicality, aesthetics and sensibility; extensive glazing, natural light and views, marked materials sensibility..
