Beyond the Obvious
Beyond the Obvious
Beyound the Obvious
If housing were mere function, all houses would be alike.
Yes, a house must be inhabited, but for AM48, funcion is only the obvious.
When we begin a development, we stand before a blank sheet where everything is possible, ideal for the most perfect expression of a unique, inimitable space. Each line, outline and shape we draw doesn’t set boundaries for the page, because the inspiration that guides us has no limits.
In fact, we are not real estate builders; we are artists on the spaces of life.

Portugal is Proving this Year's Hottest Destination
With a 20 percent increase of American visitors, chances are you’ve already seen Portugal popping up on your social media newsfeed. Friends posing in front of enviable vistas in Porto’s charming Old Town, fresh seafood dishes enjoyed on the scenic banks of the Tagus river in Lisbon. Recently named Travel + Leisure’s 2017 Destination of the Year, Portugal is having a major moment right now.
According to Travel + Leisure, the reason for Portugal’s rising popularity rests in Europe’s economic crisis that brought Portugal close to bankruptcy. As the country floundered amidst financial troubles, funding for programs like arts were dried up. “Young entrepreneurs took matters into their own hands,” explains Travel + Leisure. “[Portugal’s young people] drew on local talent and resources - resulting in a rich cultural scene.”
The final ingredient to Portugal’s tourism boom is, of course, affordable airfare. With roundtrip flights starting at $460 USD from the United States, Portugal is not only more accessible but cheaper to both fly to and enjoy.
