by architects Plano Humano
The Lisbon Wood project arises from the complete rehabilitation, with expansion, of an existing building, built in the 70’s, located at Av. António Augusto de Aguiar, one of Lisbon’s main avenues.
From the taste architects Plano Humano have for wood, as well as for the owners own activity, linked to the wood industry, influenced the concept of the wooden facade, which characterizes the architecture of the entire building, which gives rise to the name of the real estate development.
The conception of the elevation, primordial element and differentiator of the concept of architecture proposed, established the implementation of a system of shutters, in harmonic system, which allow to open or close the spaces to direct solar incidence. This whole system is completely automated and controlled by the home automation system of the apartments
The shutters consist of anodized aluminium structure, topped by steel elements, and coated with lightweight, structurally stabilized, low maintenance Thermowood type wood.
In terms of elevation composition, it was intended to achieve a more unified aspect, while implementing a strategy for harnessing and controlling solar gains.
The system of shutters aims to make the elevation dynamic, allowing the life and use required by the interior space to be transmitted to the space and exterior aspect of the building, which will always be variable from apartment to apartment, dictating different circumstances of opening or closing of the shutters, and thus giving a constant dynamism to the facade
