The new headquarters are the result of the 1st-prize in a competition held in 2014, in collaboration with the artist Alexandre Farto also known as Vhils. You can find the building in the IAPMEI (Agency for Competitiveness and Innovation) Lisbon campus, in the Lumiar district.

This campus is one of the first in Portugal specifically created for business innovation and it was planned in the early 1970s based on an orthogonal grid largely inspired by the Anglo-Saxon university model. You can find it in the surroundings of an 18th-century farmhouse on the boundaries of the city.

The new building uses the concrete structure of an existing 1980s office building which had become both physically and technologically obsolete.

The building has three distinct areas, which correspond to the different floors. The ground floor concentrates the public sphere of the center’s activities, such as a showroom equipped with value-chain simulators and applied and interactive isles of multimedia information technology.

The second floor accommodates management and services in an informal open space when the rooftop holds the social area with a bar/coffee shop opening onto a shaded terrace.

The building is unified by two large circular voids cut off from existing slabs visually enlarging the experience of space and user interconnectivity.

In terms of finishing, the interior of the building intentionally plays on the idea of material reuse of the pre-existence. The rawness of the exposed concrete elements, as well as the absence of a false ceiling, contrasts with the comfort and tactility of materials and finishes.
