Rua da Madalena, nº 214, 1º dto, Lisboa, Portugal
Parto Studio was founded in Lisbon in 2016 by 4 architects - Nuno Silva, Francisco Pitrez, Tiago Sá Gomes and Miguel Duarte – to fulfill the need to create an open space for experimentation and critical thinking that would reflect on the issues of Construction, Architecture and Architects. Beside the common practice, the studio has had the opportunity to participate in community projects focus particularly on the topics of biology, horticulture and sustainability in the urban context.

The Garden shelter project was born form the dream to create a lingering space for small community of students from the Lisbon Science University that managed to occupy a small unused plot to make a vibrant and sustainable permaculture garden. The project main goal was to establish a new balance between the overly constructed concrete surroundings of the university campus with the organic environment of a garden in constant transformation. This gathering place was designed to be as small and transparent as possible - a metal modular structure holds a waved-shape canvas that moves lively as the wind blows, protecting its inhabitants underneath and merging itself in the natural pace of the garden. From the mashed eucalyptus’s crust floor the steel cable walls emerge as an invitation for the passion fruit tree and the vines climb up to the sun, hoping that one day, in a near future, nature can take once more it’s place, swallowing the shelter and making it a new piece of its ecosystem.
