In the year of 2012, Portugal Telecom Administration invited five architecture offices to present expansion proposals for its headquarters, in Picoas zone, involving the replacement of the current market and the construction of 50.000m2 above ground, whilst maintaining the current building.


The relations of scale with Vieira da Silva Street to the east, the garden to the south and the bonds to be maintained between Saldanha Residence and the existing building of the Portugal Telecom, would set the limits of this architectural solution.
