In one of the corners of Schlesisches Strasse, the Portuguese architect has designed a residential building of seven floors, learning once again from the surrounding architectural diversity: he transformed the corner into a “monumental” point, raising the parapet of the building and extending the cornices of a neighbouring property. He sought to incorporate the existing Turkish restaurant in the base of the building; he marked the corner with a “suspended” pillar; he announced the main entrance by detaching one of the facade porticos; and finally, he kept an urban "rift" on the block as an invitation to discover the hidden backyard.
