Following the demolition of an abandoned factory, over the years and standing in one of the most famous Oporto City entrances, the site directed to one of its main roads into the city, stands out for its privileged relationship with the visual River and link to the current main railway station and rail future TGV station, the terrain, which will be implemented in the three buildings that make up the Hotel, Motel and Lofts, is integrated in an area whose quota allows no only that the buildings designed to excel in the future in terms of construction as to allow future users of the different constituent spaces, enjoy a wide landscape. In particular from the hotel.
With this project, bold in concept form, regarding the built environment, is to provide redevelopment of this area of the territory, giving rise to a strategic vision, through a relationship of tension and balance between volume and terrain, integrating topography and urban fabric, which goes beyond simply posting volumes and connecting
to the existing track. The volumes intended to take three different concepts, so take a language entirely distinct from the preexisting, specially arising either by dynamic equilibrium of ways, either by the sense of space, the set will provide the location, challenging to look beyond the field.
