The first discussion took place at the end of October 2018: the Portuguese Football Federation (FPF- Federação Portuguesa de Futebol) wanted to begin the experimental broadcasts for its new television channel in April 2019. 

The final premises of the future channel will be located inside a new building to be constructed at the same time as the new sports pavilion, on the south side of the ‘Football City’ (CF- Cidade do Futebol). Since the schedules of the two projects were not compatible, the FPF decided to build temporary premises.

The building is located in an area adjoining the enclosed CF complex, south of the entrance, in a gardened area and near the roundabout.

The program is comprised of a studio measuring 200 sqm, a series of supporting areas and an editorial office.

The building was constructed using two systems, both metallic: the first based on prefabricated modules, which are commonly used in temporary facilities, executed off-site and assembled on-site, and a second system, based on a conventional metallic structure. 

The geometric configuration incorporates a set of low volumes, about three or six metres high, that cover the studio, a cube approximately 13 metres high, arranged in the narrow plot between the fence and one of the CF’s training pitches.
