Travel to the world’s most captivating pivot door projects in Opening up. Every last Monday of the month, FritsJurgens releases a new episode in which architects, door manufacturers, and pivot door owners talk about their pivot door projects.
Carrot Incentives's sun-drenched office
In this first part of FritsJurgens’ triptych Stories of Lisbon’s light, we take you to Carrot Incentives' sun-drenched office. The city known for its narrow, steep streets and fado music basks in a characteristic type of daylight: it is reflected by the river Tagus.
Ten steel-and-glass pivot doors control this natural light in Carrot Incentives' workspace from sunrise to sunset, creating a work environment that is pleasant all day long. Watch the interview and discover this first story of FritsJurgens’ new video series, Opening up.
Bright and luxurious dwelling in Cascais
Let us take you on an imaginary holiday in part two of Stories of Lisbon’s light. Board the train in Lisbon, and you’ll find yourself in the center of Cascais about an hour later: a vibrant seaside resort, hidden on the westernmost tip of the European continent.
Glistening in the sun of the Riviera Portuguesa, architect Bruno Novo gave his modern,
minimalist touch to a holiday villa where natural light plays the leading part. Watch the interview and discover the second story of FritsJurgens’ new video series, Opening up.
Playing with contrast in a Portuguese family home
Discover a robust and daringly contrasting family home between the seven rolling hills of ‘the city of light,’ Lisbon. In this final part of FritsJurgens’ triptych, Stories of Lisbon’s light, we discover how architect Pedro Domingos designed a home where daylight and the river Tagus plays the leading role.
With the residence facing the south, radical architectural choices had to be made to allow the light to flow through the entire residence. Watch the interview and discover the third story of FritsJurgens’ new video series, Opening up.
