Coordinator: Pedro F. Pinto (JAPFP-Arquitectos)
Colaborator: João Pedro Cabral and Jorge Guimarães

This project resulted from a competition done by the Oeiras Municipallity. The iconic and imponent architectural structure had been closed for many years and its rehabilitation was necessary. Due to its vast extension along the Ribeira de Barcarena our intervention hosts the entrance area, a restaurant, a bar, 2 multifunctional buildings and an opened air auditorium. The “Patio do Sol” has a sun dile with a “meridiana” carved on the stone, and a memorial was built to honors the victims of the explosions through the years. . The works were held in 2 different stagesSpecial attention was given to the metal design works. The dark grey metal screen contrasts with the high thick walls in the auditorium of the “Patio do Enxugo”
