2014 Tile of Spain Award Winners

The jury decided to award the first prize in the Architecture category to the project “House in Principe Real” (Lisbon ) by portuguese office CAMARIM Arquitectos, highlighting the project’s “brilliant interpretation of the use of ceramics in the historic centre of Lisbon. The five-storey house is presented to the street like a traditional ceramic plane, reinterpreted to display different textures”.
