Portuguese architect Manuel Aires Mateus renovated and extended the ground floor of an 18th-century townhouse to create this Lisbon home.
Manuel Aires Mateus – one of the two founders of Aires Mateus Arquitectos – was tasked with modernising the lower level of an ageing hillside residence located between Lisbon’s medieval castle and the Romanesque-style city cathedral.
Named Casa na Rua de São Mamede ao Caldas, the building had become severely dilapidated and needed extensive repairs.
“The estate illustrated a period and an identity that were clouded due to extended neglect,” explained Aires Mateus.
