The Real Estate Sector's Adaptation to ESG Demands
April, 2024

Investors increasingly value sustainable operations, and real estate companies must consider integrating a sustainability strategy into their overall business strategy. Those who fail to adapt to ESG demands may face restrictions on accessing financing and miss out on growth opportunities.

In an era where sustainability and corporate responsibility have become priorities, the real estate sector is adapting to a more demanding operational context, driven by both local regulations and global trends.

Regulatory pressure from the European Union is increasing, requiring the integration of environmental, social, and governance factors into investment decisions and operational practices.

The ESG strategy falls within the scope of the Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR) and the Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence (CSDD) and Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) of the European Union, simultaneously observing measures provided in current regulations such as the Green Taxonomy and the Climate Base Law, aiming to promote transparency and sustainability in economic activities.

This legal framework not only shapes construction and real estate promotion practices but also influences financing and investment policies.

Key references that may influence bank policies related to sustainability and ESG in the context of loans to real estate development companies in Portugal include:

  • European Union (EU) Legislation: Various regulations and guidelines related to sustainability and corporate responsibility in the EU may affect bank policies in Portugal in the real estate context. (Example: the Regulation on Sustainability Disclosures in the Financial Services Sectors (SFDR))
  • Equator Principles: The Equator Principles, which provide guidelines on how to assess and manage environmental and social risks in financing projects, may be applicable to real estate projects.
  • Certifications for sustainable construction and others: Banks may consider certifications for sustainable constructions, such as LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method), or the Energy and Environmental Certification of Buildings (SCE), when evaluating real estate projects for loans. Additionally, ISO 14001 for environmental management and ISO 26000 for corporate social responsibility are also considered.
  • Disclosure requirements and reporting: Banks may request information on ESG impacts as well as mitigation plans throughout the project lifecycle.
  • Community integration: Companies' relationships with their stakeholders are increasingly valued. This includes engagement with the local community, dialogue with interest groups, and being accountable to stakeholders.
  • Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) practices: These include workplace diversity, business ethics, and community engagement. Companies committed to CSR enhance their reputation and attract talent and investors.
  • Bank of Portugal Guidelines: The Bank of Portugal may locally establish guidelines and regulations related to financial sustainability and responsible practices.

Companies demonstrating a clear commitment to sustainability are more likely to receive favorable financing. This is a trend that is here to stay, with increasingly stringent criteria, regardless of the motivations or pressures affecting various companies.

At Vogue Homes, we have long been developing projects with this vision and awareness. We want to leave a positive mark on the country and the world, not only by creating of high-quality houses but also in our respect for nature. It's an obvious path that involves all our partners and suppliers, from the architecture to the choice of all materials. The result leaves us satisfied, but always attentive to what we should and can do better.

Recessed LED profiles in cornices, in bathroom mirrors, in kitchen cabinets, and in wardrobes create a cozy atmosphere.

SMEG appliances, chosen for their excellence and design, complement the kitchen with quality and functionality.

While the minimalist frames meet aesthetic requirements, they ensure energy efficiency and thermal comfort, with exterior glazed openings also composed of minimalist aluminum frames with thermal break, anodized finish in champagne tone, double glazing, and motorized opening system controlled by home automation.

The glass guards associated with the exterior balcony openings, composed of tempered laminated glass embedded in an aluminum profile, also have an anodized finish in champagne tone.

Requalification with Soul: São Carlos Comes to Life in Full Chiado
Dezembro, 2023

In the heart of Lisbon, lies an architectural gem: the São Carlos residential project is a celebration of historical architecture while also embracing modernity and comfort.

Rodrigo Sampayo, from Openbook Studio, led the transformation of this ruined building into a residential masterpiece and shares its story. Respecting tradition, the facade kept a characteristic pink hue, while the interior was completely reinvented. Drawing inspiration from the memories of old Lisbon buildings, the project incorporates traditional elements, such as cushioned wooden shutters, high skirting boards, and ornate trimmings, not forgetting the worked ceilings.

The original building, consisting of small compartments, was transformed into spacious and generous spaces. With three apartments of about 250 m² each and a duplex on the upper floors of approximately 500 m², São Carlos offers a unique experience. The glass doors that separate some divisions stand out, providing stunning views of the Largo de São Carlos and the houses of the capital.

This project is a reinterpretation of Lisbon living, combining the charm of the old with the functionality and comfort of today. São Carlos, winner of several awards, is a shining example of our commitment to preserving Lisbon's historical beauty while providing contemporary spaces of excellence.

VOGUE HOMES - São Carlos Building Winner at the SIC Expresso Real Estate Awards 2023

São Carlos Building Winner at the SIC Expresso Real Estate Awards 2023
October, 2023

On October 19th, Vogue Homes received the award for Best Interior Architecture - Housing, at the 5th edition of the SIC Expresso Real Estate Awards. The winner this year was the São Carlos building in Chiado, one of the most emblematic and traditional neighborhoods in the city of Lisbon, following the award of Best New Construction to the MGC 720 development in the city of Oporto, in last year's edition, this recognition places yet another SIC Expresso trophy in the hands of Vogue Homes.

The São Carlos building, rebuilt after the 1755 earthquake and now rehabilitated by Vogue Homes, is a historic jewel in the heart of Lisbon. In the 19th century, the square in which it is located, with the same name, gained enormous prominence with the construction of the Real Teatro de São Carlos. In recent decades, Chiado has undergone increasing revitalization, against the lack of characterization resulting from immediacy and massification, unfortunately often difficult to fight.

The rehabilitation was a successful challenge on an aesthetic, technical and environmental level, always with a view to an end that honored the past and provided the best experience today. Watch the video to see the result.


São Carlos Building receives Honorable Mention
August, 2023

The building predates the 1755 earthquake, after which it underwent reconstruction, extended to the entire devastated downtown Lisbon. Since then, Largo de São Carlos has experienced different periods of cultural and architectural wealth, of which the construction of the Real Teatro de São Carlos stands out, inaugurated in 1793. From the second half of the 20th century, the Chiado area was voted a abandonment that resulted in the deterioration of its urban fabric, with great risks of losses heritage sites of high historical and cultural value.

In the last three decades, we have witnessed the rebirth of a dormant Chiado, in constant struggle against giving in to the immediate financial return of growing tourism. The recovery of this building signifies the resurgence of (and does justice to) the throb patterns of the elegant and refinement of 19th century Lisbon.
The choices made regarding its exceptional areas and unique quality of structure and
finishes, result in an increase of the criteria seen until now and, inevitably,
positively contaminates future interventions in the area. The happy residents of São Carlos will bring themselves this requirement to the existing commercial and cultural offer. With them, and with those attracted for them will come, the one that competes as the noblest area of the city fights the dangerous trend of mischaracterization, trivialization and loss of quality so difficult to fight in any metropolis of a cosmopolitan nature. The best of Lisbon's identity is promoted and safeguarded in this rehabilitation.
At the same time, the intrinsically high material value of this area is boosted, serving as a magnet to future quality investments. The heart of the city must be lived again, in
depth and awareness, as opposed to subjugation to a mercantilist and superficial use. A
Vogue Homes provides the best expression of this desired experience with the São Carlos building.
Respect the past, fulfill the present and secure the future.


Vogue Homes strengthens relations with the world of art
August, 2023

Art inspires us. It brings people together and breaks down borders. It is part of our essence and we want it
reciprocate in the best way. Vogue Homes will boost art, namely 
contemporary painting, through various initiatives such as artistic residencies, the promotion of

exhibitions and art galleries, educational programs, support for established artists, attribution of
prizes, etc.

Through artistic work, it reveals emotions, tells stories and reflects the depth of human experience. 

A timeless form that transcends borders, painting allows the expression of interior worlds and leaves an indelible mark on our collective conscience.

The houses that we create are physical spaces that we hope are vehicles for extraordinary experiences. The art will also be fuel for this mission.

JUNE, 2023

In a privileged location by the river, the Paulo Duque residential project perfectly combines sustainability, modernity and comfort. The spacious apartments, with private outdoor areas, superior finishes, durability and charm, invite you to a refined lifestyle.

Location is always a key factor when choosing our new address. However, it is often difficult to meet all needs and desires at the same time.

The location of the Paulo Duque development allows it to combine several requirements, without giving up what it likes: a location on the first line of the river, proximity to the center of Lisbon, the green areas of Jamor, the beaches of the Cascais line and easy access to highways . A solution that meets multiple requests.

The Paulo Duque project comprises only 6 units, with T3 duplex and T2 apartments. Each apartment offers spacious and bright spaces, with high quality finishes. The areas vary between 80 m² and 170 m². All apartments have integrated outdoor spaces, providing relaxing moments outdoors. The duplexes on the ground floor have a generous private garden of 100 m², while the duplexes on the upper floors offer a spacious private terrace of 28 m².

Each fraction was carefully planned to provide a functional and balanced distribution of indoor and outdoor spaces. You will have the freedom to project and express your identity in a modern and welcoming environment, where well-being will always be present.

Construction completion is scheduled for July 2025. For more information on available apartments, contact us at +351 913 385 846 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..



Vogue Homes applies for the National Urban Rehabilitation Award with the São Carlos Building, in Chiado
Abril, 2023

The São Carlos building, in Lisbon, was built before the 1755 earthquake and renovated by Vogue Homes in a project that stands out as an incomparable example of success in revitalizing Chiado. In addition to bringing back a valuable historical and cultural heritage, the intervention offers exceptional housing areas and differentiated shops on the ground floor, attracting an elegant and cosmopolitan dynamism. (...)

The National Prize for Urban Rehabilitation is an initiative that distinguishes urban interventions that contribute most to the qualification of cities and to the well-being of the community in various aspects. Created by Vida Imobiliária and Promevi, the award assesses the success of interventions through market acceptance, their social value, their impact on the community, and ability to induce changes in the urban fabric.

The São Carlos building, in Lisbon, predates the 1755 earthquake and, after its reconstruction, became an important landmark of Belle Époque architecture. The Chiado area was, unfortunately, abandoned during the second half of the 20th century, resulting in the deterioration of its historical and cultural heritage. In recent decades, Chiado has been reborn with fervor and the restoration of this building is an exceptional example of the revival of what was once the epicenter of culture in Lisbon in the 19th century.

The ground floor will receive a differentiated commercial space, promoting a new social and commercial dynamic, in perfect balance with the housing component of the remaining floors of the building. This intervention went far beyond the legal requirements for urban rehabilitation and will certainly serve as a reference and inspiration for future quality investments in the area. The disruption created by its incomparable quality and large housing areas will itself bring new disruptions that will perpetuate themselves, helping to combat the mischaracterization, trivialization and loss of quality that are so difficult to counter in any cosmopolitan metropolis.

The restoration of the São Carlos building was a challenge associated with a huge responsibility, of which Vogue Homes has always been aware. It respects the past, fills the present and secures the future.

The Urban Rehabilitation Week returned to the stage at the LX Factory, from March 29th to 31st, with the theme “Rehabilitation, construction and sustainability”
March, 2023 - (re)Portugal / Vida Imobiliária

The tenth edition of the Urban Rehabilitation Week was a success once again. Get to know the opinion and suggestions of the CEO of Vogue Homes, Joaquim Lico, on the subject of urban licensing, in his interventions at this meeting.

The event had 14 000 registrations, carried out by around 1 850 people, distributed across the 28 conferences that made up this year's program, from the 29th to the 31st of March, at the Lx Factory.

Joaquim Lico, CEO of Vogue Homes, participated in the Round Table "Lisbon - The new centralities and investment opportunities", underlining the importance of an agile assessment of urban licensing processes for property developers. "The longer the process is under appraisal and evaluation, the greater the financial impact on the projects", he said, highlighting that this is one of the most relevant factors to consider when investing in the real estate sector. According to him, this delay could jeopardize the construction of housing for the middle class, making them less affordable in terms of the purchase price.

Another issue raised by the CEO of Vogue Homes was the slowness in issuing licenses for use. “How is it that a simple administrative process sometimes takes longer than building the building itself?

In his opinion, standardizing the interpretation of municipal regulations would be essential for developers and technicians, allowing them to have clear guidelines in the development of projects. Furthermore, Joaquim Lico highlighted the subject of consultations with external entities and suggested that Lisbon City Council could institute a tacit approval procedure to speed up the licensing process.

On the subject of “Lisbon of the Neighborhoods”, Joana Almeida, Councilor for Urbanism, Information Systems and the Smart City, and Transparency and Corruption Prevention of the Lisbon City Council, shared that the Lisbon City Council has a team working on the city of 15 minutes: «the program There is life in my neighborhood intends to implement this concept, where essential urban functions can be within a 15-minute walk».

During these days, the candidates for the National Prize for Urban Rehabilitation were known, on permanent display, including the São Carlos building, in Lisbon. The program included presentations of case studies that are behind some of the works already awarded by the PNRU in previous years and that deserved mention by Claúdia Beirão Lopes, Director of Licensing & Urban Planning at Reify: “In Portugal, things are done with very high quality, very well made».

Sustainability as a pillar of the real estate market
January, 2023 - SmartCities.pt

The environmental impact generated by the construction industry must be reduced and does not end when the construction process of a property is completed. Buildings must also have a reduced impact throughout their lifetime, that is, construction projects must incorporate elements that have a continuous positive influence on the long-term environmental impact, such as energy and water efficiency.
