National Palace of Queluz in Portugal by Tiago do Vale Architects

Thursday, May 18th, 2017

A Palace Returned to Nature

The complex history of the project and construction of the Palace of Queluz resulted in a present conformation that, on one hand, doesn’t reflect the original intent of its design nor, on the other hand, provides the architectural ensemble the opportunity of an urban experience that dignifies and values it.

AR Vinhos in Aveiro, Portugal by Paulo Martins, Arqto

Wednesday, May 17th, 2017

Article source: Paulo Martins, Arqto

Based on minimalistic and pure lines, this wine house project, located in Aveiro, is characterised by a plane that is at the center of the design, which flows around the entire space.

Following a gardened furniture at the entrance of the space (which is an allusion to the vineyards), the focal point becomes the flowing plane, which guides the eye through the space, passing by the exhibited wine bottles, and ending at the main counter desk.

The wine house is divided in two floors: the top floor with a more private space, where wine tasting and workshops can be conducted, and the ground floor dedicated to the comercial activity of the shop.

MAAT – Museum of Art, Architecture and Technology in Lisbon, Portugal by AL_A

Wednesday, May 3rd, 2017

Article source: AL_A 

MAAT, the new Museum of Art, Architecture and Technology, is an outward-looking museum located on the banks of the Tagus in Belém, the district from where the Portuguese great explorers set off. Proposing a new relationship with the river and the wider world, the kunsthalle is a powerful yet sensitive and low-slung building that explores the convergence of contemporary art, architecture and technology.

The new building is the centrepiece of EDP Foundation’s masterplan for an art campus that includes the repurposed Central Tejo power station.

Ar de Rio Bar Esplanade in Vila Nova de Gaia, Portugal by Menos é Mais Arquitectos Associados, lda

Tuesday, May 2nd, 2017

Article source: Menos é Mais Arquitectos Associados, lda 

Architecture is not built without matter as it imposes a physuical limit.

The limits of this object reside in the precise definition of its structural ‘parti’ as much as in the desire of achieveing a limitless state.

The brief asked for a versatile space, protected from the seasonal changes of weather but open to the river breeze in warmer days.

The condition of its openings is such that the object becomes with ease a ‘covered’ esplanade.

Casa de Magalhães Nursery School in Ponte de Lima , Portugal by Carvalho Araújo

Friday, April 21st, 2017

Article source: Carvalho Araújo

The ‘Casa de Magalhães Nursery School’ is located near the ‘Casa de Magalhães Home for the Elderly’, sharing some functionalities like public access, parking and a few services. The nursery school building arises from a volume displacement that is subtracted from the home for the elderly base building, allowing the creation of a courtyard and, at the same time, the new building for the children. Although both buildings take different languages, they share the same DNA, the same “skin”, which results in some common principles like privacy, security, intimacy and comfort. The initial volumetry of the set brings us to the cyclic process of life itself, as a metaphor of the aging process; from small to big, from simple to complex.

Prazeres Building in Lisbon, Portugal by Aurora Arquitectos

Tuesday, March 28th, 2017

Article source: Aurora Arquitectos

Can one house contain another two?

There is a question that is repeated frequently when intervening in an apartment building. In order to have a garden, one needs to renounce the view. In turn, to have the view it means to choose one of the last floors, usually far from where the garden is.
