FÁBRICA 1921 is a mixed-use residential development at the heart of the Benfica district in Lisbon, Portugal. Built on the site of a former textile factory, the new condominium which retains part of the historic facade, project features over 160 one- to four-bedroom apartments inserted in more than 4000 m² of social, leisure, and well-being areas. The development houses a gym, a rooftop pool, a kid’s club with access to a playground, and outdoor spaces for relaxation.
Building acoustic standards has always been a major concern since the building design has started. FÁBRICA 1921 is located minutes away from the city centre and is surrounded by numerous cafés and restaurants.
To reduce the impact noise, 11.000 m² of high-performance Stravifloor Mat-W8a resilient rubber mats were installed as an underscreed for all the floors in the building (common areas). The wavy profile of the underscreed helps reduce the contact area to the subfloor, thereby reducing the dynamic stiffness of the material and maximizing its performance.
A Stravifloor Deck floating floor using dovetailed metal deck sheets on which a thin concrete slab is poured to form inertia blocks which decouple the rooftop swimming pool from the rest of the building.
FÁBRICA 1921, with its focus on healthy living, features two gyms equipped with discrete Stravigym HP gym floating floors and our patented dBooster® technology. These ‘High Performance’ floors are engineered to control vibrations and minimize low-frequency impact noise generated by various fitness activities such as running, using weight machines and certain types of free weights.
