Historic Shops of LisbonDiscovering the rich culture of traditional commerce
In recent times, tradicional shops are disappearing at a fast pace. Historic Shops Lisbon is a program to protect and promote these historical places that play an important role in the city’s life and soul. We joined a mixed team of architects, urbanists, investigators and designers to work on the digital strategy that would lead to the development of a website.
When conceiving the website, we thought first of all to surprise the visitors by showing the beauty of these unique places. The visitor can discover almost 100 shops, with photographs and videos of their interiors, people and long-lost tools. After this initial engagement, we created a rich and fluid navigation between a city map, a directory and an book-like page.
Get to know each Shop
The platform allows visitors to search for specific products and find useful information to help them rediscover the city's shops.
During an 8 month project, we defined user flows, information architecture, wireframes and prototypes, followed by a full integration on a custom CMS.
