In this triangular plot in the center of Lisbon, there were several proposals with different promoters. Its particular location and the different volume ranges that conditioned the space, defined, in our interpretation, the final solution.


Two tall and narrow volumes, with differents shapes and textures, according to the fronts of the main Avenue and the side small square bordered by the high volume of Sheraton hotel, and the low front of old Alfredo da Costa Maternity, formalize the line joining them at south.
