Embaixada is currently constituted by seven associates graduated in Architecture (Albuquerque Goinhas, Augusto Marcelino, Cristina Mendonça, Luís Baptista, Nuno Griff, Pedro Patrício, Sofia Antunes) and counts on the regular contribution of several specialists, in the most diverse areas, in order to extend its expertise and know-how.
Casa dos Cubos
The Project is a reconversion of a former run-down infrastructure. The new program comprises two distinct areas: a public area for exhibitions, meetings and cafeteria and a private area consisting of lecture rooms and accommodation for invited artists. The design maintains the entire external perimeter construction, while its run-down interior is totally scooped out.
The new construction establishes itself as the anatomy of the existing building. A new architectural body that runs throughout the available space, de-multiplying tectonically the finite interior into a new series of places and programmatic situations. A new interior within an interior.
