contributed by NGHM

Cascais, under an urbanistic point of view, has a lack of large public spaces with similar characteristics to a city square. This project tries to create a large and spacious ambience to receive future public events. It is an urban interior, where the roof of the parking lot in square D. Diogo de Menezes in Cascais has been treated as if it were a living room. The roof surface platform was added with several glass volumes that connect with the underground parking. The white concrete surface material makes the stonewall of the Citadel fortress stand out during daytime. At night the breaking lines of the platform light up and give a special aattention to the fortress as to the square surface. The translucent staircase boxes continuously change colour. The fine luminic led strips drawn in the concrete floor recover the ancient image of the navigation maps. This way park lamps could be avoided.
