Lisboa, Portugal

Welcome to


2 weeks summer school

In the Heart of Lisbon

Lisbon is a city full of authenticity where old customs and ancient history intermix with cultural influences from all over the world. There's the amazing food, the good weather with beautiful sunsets, the river, the sea, the people. A vibrate contemporary city, full of secrets and places to be discovered. 

Design & Build

Our concept if very simple:

You DESIGN it and you BUILD it!

From A to Z you'll be involved in everything and learn from all the different phases of the process. Through out this process we'll be supporting you with a team of tutors, with experience in both phases and tutoring methodologies. 

Interventions That Matters

In Hands-On Lisbon you will work closely with the community to receive their inputs and understand their problems and needs. It is intended that the interventions have a local impact by finding solutions and raising questions. The goal in the end is to improve the neighborhood.

it's powered by



Warehouse is an architecture and art collective founded in 2013. 

In our search for what architecture is nowadays and what role the architects play, Warehouse fundaments its architectural praxis through design, experimentation, mediation, civic participation processes, collaboration and practical intervention.

Warehouse develops participatory architecture projects in the cultural and social scope. These processes lead to results with greater impact in the emerging urban landscape.

Warehouse seeks to contribute to the collective and responsible construction of the public and private space. We understand the role of the architect as a mediator, aware of the impact that urban space activation initiatives and social interventions have with the communities that inhabit the city.

The idiosyncratic factor of the collective is its ability to design and build their own projects. Hands-on approach is transversal in our practice. Warehouse develops collaborative projects because we believe that through co-creation and multidisciplinary, it’s possible to achieve better results.
