A building rehabilitation is one of the most ingenious and challenging works of architecture and engineering. It allows to map the building and its intrinsic memories, but at the same time it opens the possibility of reinventing and becoming part of its history. In Dare Lisbon House rehabilitation our main concerns are the energy sustainability and the reduction of carbon footprint (visible in the chosen materials and highly efficient chosen equipment) and the social sustainability (with the use of national suppliers and artisans).


This building is located in the heart of Baixa Pombalina (downtown), in a central block of the monumental complex, but close to Praça do Rossio. It’s part of the Public Interest Group called Lisbon Pombalina, built after the earthquake of 1755. It was the eleventh building to be built at Rua dos Sapateiros, between 1794 and 1798.

The century XVIII details are visible at DARE:
. the frontal walls and the crosses of Sto. André, the visible arches in the R/C and the walls of stone masonry, essential characteristics of the Pombaline construction;
. the partition walls, present on 5th floor apartments;
. the original wall painting with decorative frescoes in some apartments;
. the tiles.
