Brufe Social Center in Brufe, Vila Nova de Famalicão, Portugal by Imago

 
February 13th, 2011 by Sumit Singhal

Inaugurated 2010, Based on a block form some openings are carved to illuminate the interior space or in most cases tearing and piercing the building to its inner courtyard. The building is turned inside out: the exterior façades look opaque, dense, with just a few carves in the main points of the building like the stairs and the main entrance. The interior façades appear as a translucid and continuous glass curtain wall that embrace the internal patio shaded by proposed trees. In the top portion of the mass each carving provokes an event with its surroundings, covered parking spaces, main entrance, and a covered seating area for open air events.
