The walls, roof and door frames have been restored, preserving the essential features of the original construction. The interiors were redesigned, shaped to their new roles (e.g. restaurant), and made compatible with current legal requirements.

The new volume is a contemporary creation, exposed to a completely different language. It is an organic, dynamic construction that contrasts with the orthogonal, classical language of the building where it is embedded. The design is defined by great plasticity, both in terms of forms and materials, and is markedly inspired by the natural environment around the site.

Several features of that environment are present in the architecture of the building, including the outline of the island, rocks, whales and wine casks. The new volume acts like a giant sculpture, tailored for its location.

Intruduction of FCC Arquitectura + Paulo Lobo

FCC Arquitectura and Paulo Lobo are two studios situated in Oporto Portugal. This work in particular is the result of a partnership and fusion of the ideas of both studios. FCC architecture developed the reconstruction and the new physical space, while Paulo Lobo took care of the interior design. Both offices are always looking for an iconic image in their works, through the plasticity of forms, and the unique textures of the used materials.
