Internationally considered the best social housing project in Portugal, and a reference in Europe, Casas Rainha Dona Leonor is specifically designed for low-income families. The new apartment building in Porto replaces the old and degraded housing complex with the same name from the 1950s.
Being a social housing project strict quality standards were imposed on the project. Much attention was paid to the necessary impact sound insulation of floating slabs and screeds in order to keep the transmission of unwanted vibrations and the associated noise pollution within strict limits.
