This project presents a rehabilitation of an 19th century old building with an unusual triangle-shaped planimetry, with an deployment area of only 52m², following a housing program consisting of 4 lofts in open space.

This condition has determined much of the interior spatial organization solution, where a new staircase plays a major role.

The facade colors have been restored, with new frames. The wooden structure of the floors was maintained and strengthened.

Upstairs, the original volumetry of the building was restored, revealing a small terrace that crowns the intervention.

Olympia Cinema in Porto, Portugal by NO Arquitectos Lda.

Sunday, April 5th, 2015

Article source: NO Arquitectos Lda.

Design a disco club could be frightening and it may become a very naughty challenge. The requirements of the main public and the final purpose is the opposite of my main beliefs on architecture.
Some keywords for a program like this are ‘entertainment’, ‘vanity’, ‘excess’, ‘fantasy’ and somehow ‘performance’ seeking legitimacy.
Austerity and delict may coexist, depending on the critical state of awareness of the facts and its proper resolution, as A. Loos stood for. I’m out to read.
