Inspiration and discovery

Inspiration and discovery

Sitting opposite to the Palacio de Carnide, Carmim catches our eye.

An entire block blossoms into a collection of renovated homes and colourful gardens.

LUXURY FROM
ANOTHER ERA

LUXURY FROM ANOTHER ERA

Carmim comprises several constructions of no more than 3 stories, which occupy almost the entire block in the layout of a small country estate.

The project includes detached houses, two-story apartments and a loft unit arranged around green spaces with garage parking included.

Interiors

The best of both worlds

The interiors are totally reworked in a modern and elegant design, making the most of the particularities of the different buildings.Shared and private spaces have been divided with subtlety and imagination, enlarging the living areas without renouncing privacy.

The Experience

ARCHITECT

Aires Mateus

The studio Aires Mateus is an international benchmark for Portuguese contemporary architecture. Its mastery of innovation in the recreation of vernacular elements of the tradition has been recognised through various national and international awards.

“Because of its scale, and the very close relationship it implies with our customers, housing is always closer to us and remains the central body of our work.”

Manuel Aires Mateus
2017 Pessoa Award

Multi-disciplinary Artist

Evy Jokhova

Carmim receives the contribution of Evy Jokhova, a multi-disciplinary artist whose work explores the relationship between construction, body and mind in a dialogue between architecture, philosophy and art.

Neighbourhood

Calm and friendly

Carnide is a civil parish of sharp contrasts between the old and new. Carmim is part of the special protection area of Carnide Velho or old Carnide and to a large extent conserves its former traditionally rural aspect.

The old preserved cobblestones, the typical restaurants and the small shops with their faithful clientele complete the picture of tranquillity amid the frenzy of the big city.

Heritage & History

Leisure and abundance

Carnide is traditionally well-known for its fertile and well-watered land. Up to the nineteenth century, the land bordering the Palacio de Carnide belonged to Quinta Grande, the large country estate owned by the Counts of Carnide.The palace was built in 1763.The clearing occupied today by the Largo do Jogo da Bola was the place chosen by the counts and their guests for sporting activities, especially jogo da bola or jeu de paume – a precursor to modern tennis.
