The pop-up headquarters of beautiful business: an academy and a vacated bank building. 


Our theme for this year is “The Battle for Beautiful Business,” and for that we’re going straight into the lion’s den: the former main office of one of Portugal’s biggest banks, located in the heart of Lisbon’s financial center, right by the city’s main square, the Praça do Comércio. The bankers who used to work here have moved out, the building is empty—and we’re moving in to transform it.


A beautiful home in the Academy of Sciences.

Large parts of House19 will take place in the the 16th-century Academy of Sciences - one of the most stunning places in Lisbon.
