In Portugal’s Southern city development that features heavy new retail, commercial and residential construction, sits the Live’in building by RVDM Architects. The building is comprised of 89 residential units with commercial space on the base.

Live’in had one major challenge, the noise impact from the nearby eight-lane highway. For this, Alucobond aluminum composite material was chosen for the exterior cladding, which not only achieved noise reduction but also regulates occupant privacy and exposure to sunlight, given the unique fabrication of the panels.

The building utilizes two towers, with the eastern providing smaller residential layouts, and the western offering larger accommodations. The unique angles in which the buildings were constructed provided a structural solution allowing for flexibility on the interior.

There are two exterior skins utilized on the building’s façade. The first layer featured floor the ceiling windows, extending space between balconies. While the second, the metallic Alucobond, serves as the building’s protective skin.
