ASCER ARCHITECTURE PRIZE WINNERS WITH CASA NO PRÍNCIPE REAL
The Ascer Architecture Prize in 2014, one of Spain’s most prestigious architecture prize was awarded to Camarim architects for the project of a house in the heart of Lisbon.
Located a few meters from the Garden of Príncipe Real , this 41 m² plot allows the construction of a small 5-storey urban house for a family in Lisbon and was highlighted by the jury as “a brilliant interpretation using [the tile] in the historic center of Lisbon. ”
The building’s skin is a contemporary approach to the tiles covering the former building, which was in advanced state of decay. A set of abstract rules was used to transform the original tile’s motif in an abstract pattern, embodied in 3 distinct media: a flat-tile base, a bas-relief-tile body and a perforated-steel, light-permeable, entablature.
Ascer Prize is awarded by a panel of judges that includes Martha Thorne, director of the Pritzker Prize , Fernando Márquez Cecilia, director of the prestigious magazine of architecture El Croquis, and Emilio Tunon, architect awarded with Mies Van der Rohe Award.
