Hostel IN Parede

The designers have intervened on a decrepit building on the outskirts of Lisbon, with a complex geometric structure. The four pyramid-shaped volumes and roof have influenced the internal layout, while the choice of a main structural grid in laminated steel comes from the client’s desire to facilitate a possible future conversion in terms of use. 

The stairwell connecting the three levels in the central part of the building contaminates the minimalist interiors with their prevalently white walls, thanks to its compact, bright yellow color.
