The Duque d’Ávila Palace, on Avenida 5 de Outubro
it a noble building in the heart of Avenidas Novas, dating from 1913. With 900 sqm, the building is spread over two floors above ground and a basement floor. The original architectural project was signed by Luiz Bernardo de Silva Estrela, the first owner.
In 2005, the building underwent rehabilitation works, which allowed to recover its interior as well as maintain its original facade. In 2017, the building was acquired by Worx Real Estate Consultants, which was responsible for a new intervention, carried out in partnership with the Ricardo do Espírito Santo Silva Foundation, and which focused on the recovery of the paintings, frescoes and fabrics that decorate this elegant space.
Also at this stage, the color of the façade was changed, which now stands out for its sharp contrast, which enhances the grandeur of the mansion.
Currently, the building serves as the headquarters of Worx Real Estate Consultants, being adapted to office and meeting rooms, but with the total preservation of its original design, which results in elegant and imposing spaces, which provide a unique work environment.
On the basement floor, remodeling works were carried out by the architecture and construction department of Worx Real Estate Consultants, and this space was transformed into an art gallery, fully prepared to receive the most different types of exhibitions, and with independent access from the street. . The intention of Worx Real Estate Advisors is that this space can be used to introduce the new generation of Portuguese artists.
