Rua, Restaurant/Bar in Porto, Portugal by Proj3ct and Pluggo

Thursday, May 16th, 2013

Article source: Proj3ct and Pluggo

Located on the blooming nightlife district of Oporto’s downtown, RUA occupies the ground floor of an old building facing a narrow yet busy street. The vacant space matched in many ways the traditional construction  of Oporto old city center: narrow lots with high openings and ceilings, the extensive use of granite stone and local painted ceramic tiles (“azulejo”) on the façades, the appropriation of small and cozy patios. The relation towards the street was quite effective and dominant, as it could be enhanced towards the existing patio.

Godinho’s House in Porto, Portugal by Ressano Garcia Arquitectos

Thursday, April 11th, 2013

Article source: Ressano Garcia Arquitectos

The house is located in a long and narrow plot. There was an existing house which was six meters large and twenty long, the new building had to use the same footprint and expanded to three floors. The south elevation faces the street and at the back of the house, the garden. The living and dining rooms overlook the garden through a large window, so the house can be flooded with natural light all day long. Both social areas bring the garden inside, an intimate atmosphere surrounded by stone walls and boulders, previously located underground.

Interior Renovation of Restaurant – Porto II in Portugal by Miguel Nery Arquitectura

Tuesday, April 2nd, 2013

Article source: Miguel Nery Arquitectura

The project brief involved a restaurant, that was once considered a point of reference in the city, occupying a plot measuring 5×60 meters, a minimal budget and the customer’s wish for it to be able to function with ease throughout its long daily opening period (8 a.m. to midnight). The proposed solution attempts to take advantage of the full potential of the existing space (both interior and exterior), thereby reducing the work to a minimum.

I’m a Portuguese architect and last December i was awarded the 1st prize Work In Progress competition at the Project CASA’12 event in Porto, Portugal, with the project FoFoFo commissioned by FORBO FLOORING.FoFoFo (stands for Folfing Forbo Folie) is a small stand for a Linoleum producer company – FORBO FLOORING – with the objective to promoted the characteristics of their product (linoleum in this case). The natural material (linoleum) is cutted into 22m long stripes to assure a continuous and voluptuous 3 dimensional pattern that is to be hanged on both walls and ceiling of the MDF structure. The simple joinery of the structure requires no glues, screws or nails due to process of using CNC of the parts (could be interesting to send photos of the assembly process).
