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.

College CEBES in Oporto, Portugal by Oval Arch Studios

Thursday, April 11th, 2013

Article source: Oval Arch Studios

The project proposes a building that is based on the integration in the surrounding environment characterized by single-family luxury homes, volumes somewhat fragmented, with balconies and rooftops. Thus, in this context, we maintain very distinctive identity on Avenue Marechal Gomes da Costa (the surrounding haracterized by this avenue, with an urban character of low density allows easy access to major highways and ensures stability of the building pattern of the area), and created a proposal for a volume that integrates elements of popular architecture and contemporary design with presenting a building with residential architecture characteristics.Therefore, the volume proposed is defined by the rhythms of the architectonic gramar, by the glazed openings and based upon the design of a family house.

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

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.

A small space with just over 20m ² was the site for the deployment of this kiosk in the Casa da Música Metro Station in the city of Porto, Portugal. This project was based on the idea of “pause”. Pause between commuting routes (home-work-home, home-school-home, etc.) where one color dominates: the yellow.
