The Elevated Bar and Terrace at the 9 April Garden in Lisbon, Portugal

The Bar/Terrace at the 9 April garden, is the optimum example of benefiting from a vantage point with the perfect panoramic horizon over the Tagus River and the surrounding historical buildings of Lisbon, Portugal. It lies at the edge of the elevated park on the roof of an existing building which anchors the level change between the garden and the lower plane of the adjacent street below.

The garden of 9 April -also known as Alberta or rock garden of Count Obidos, a promontory appears as a green space surrounded by tradition, open to the river and ships.

Designed by aspa, the bar/terrace is built as single storey structure. It defines its character through lightness of materials, transparency, permeability and reflection promotes and preserves existing views, allowing the structure not to become an obstacle.
