OLX Group


One of the most emblematic office projects in Lisbon in 2018, the OLX Group headquarters in Portugal was the result of a close collaboration between the client, Pedra Silva Arquitectos studio and Vector Mais. Reflecting OLX Group's working philosophy and the informality of contemporary offices, the space is filled with quality details including traditional Portuguese tiles and acoustic elements produced with Burel Mountain Originals wool.

You can see more about the creative process on the Pedra Silva Arquitectos studio website.


“We wanted the project to reflect the colourful and charming city of Lisbon and at the same time meet the challenges of informality and flexibility in contemporary offices, as well as more technical issues such as acoustics.”

“We chose the traditional Portuguese tiles as a starting point because they are everywhere in the city and represent a typically Portuguese craft, while also offering great flexibility.

Then, in order to meet acoustic requirements, we designed a matching acoustic absorbent tile made from Burel Mountain Originals - a Portuguese fabric handmade from 100% pure wool.”

“The presence of wood elements in the space was very important in the design of the project in order to create a comfortable and domestic feeling. All the glass partition frames and joinery were bespoke, with a design developed by us and detailed at a 1:1 scale.”

“The main work areas were located near the facade - allowing employees to develop their activities with as much natural light as possible - while creating clusters with different spaces and programs to allow more control over the work zones in the open space and provide better acoustics.”

“By creating closed meeting rooms and individual booths near the working areas, staff was provided with more options as to where they can do their work, both individually and collectively.”


“OLX is a youthful company which follows the tendency of contemporary information technology companies, where a very informal work environment is a must and employees’ mental happiness and physical comfort are mandatory guidelines.”
