CA Crédito Agrícola in Viana do Castelo, Portugal by Marques Franco Arquitectos

Sunday, May 3rd, 2015

Article source: Marques Franco Arquitectos

Designing a bank is always a delicate affair. On the one hand it is important to highlight the transparency and accessibility necessary to an institution that holds our money. On the other hand, it is always necessary to ensure a sense of security and robustness. The exterior of the building looks for that, the ground floor is transparent, easy to see through and access, the upper floors have less fenestrations and more solid construction.

Saturday, April 25th, 2015

Article source: José Adrião Arquitectos

Located on a narrow street of Alcântara district, the existing building didn’t possess any particular quality. Apart from a rigorous and well balanced façade – which brings character to the surrounding urban fabric- all of its interior was in imminent collapse. The maximum volume allowed by local legislation was built within a plot of 7 meters wide by 22 meters long.
