Benefiting from a vantage point with panoramic views over the Tagus River and framed by a set of buildings whose architectural heritage is of great interest, the garden on April 9 also known as Alberta (Some of the Convent of the Carmelite nuns of Albertas) or rock garden of Count Obidos, a promontory appears as a green space surrounded by tradition, open to the river and ships, with the south bank to hide massive Almada.
Deployed on the northern edge of a terrace (roof) of a pre-existing building where it makes the docking with the garden, the bar / terrace unfolds in a single floor. The ephemeral nature of its construction, its image of lightness, transparency, permeability and reflection promotes and preserves the existing relations of views, not allowing the new structure emerges as a barrier to the garden.
