Bar La Bohème entre amis
The Bar “La Bohème” (entre amis) is located in the “Galeria de Paris” street, amidst the downtown area of Porto. The redesign sought to implement and structuralize the space, creating its own identity. The solution was formalized through the texture and the colour of the wood, which defines the space and provides depth to the structure’s design. This structure, which was placed along the corridors and namely at the walls and ceiling, allows to subvert the whole appearance of the space, appealing to its visitors sense of discovery.

Date built: 2010

House Chão das Giestas
The house evolves planimetricly with the city of Guarda as a background. The place profoundly altered exists in a peripheral context recently urbanized. The natural territory was depersonalized by the topographic changes caused by the urbanization. The existing public space is build without an organisation that matches the topography of the place, forcing an artificial and uncharacteristic lotting where there are different morphologic construction formulations e several typologies.

Education Center Porto
The site of action is part of an urban context through the recently redesigned Detailed Plan of Antas. The nearby is not defined by buildings, with only the north to the existence of a huge slope and south of the proposed construction site. The land is entirely surrounded by streets. The area of the school is approximately 2 967.00 m2.

Municipal Theatre of Guarda
The TMG is situated in Guarda, in a rural part of Portugal ‘s interior. The buildings are located in a central part of the city south of the old city limits. The site is contiguous with the close-knit urban fabric, but does not share a direct relationship with the surrounding public space. The construction site possesses an apparently invisible contextualist character.

Salgueiros Housing, Lapa, Porto

The proposed building adapts by filling urban empty space, searching for an urban unit of new and old fragments, products of different moments. These fragments can never be reduced to an immediate unit, but must coexist as parallel realities.

The image of the bar is born of the treatment of the walls and roofs with different heights harmonized for the red color and cuts in its materials for the introduction of artificial light. It was intended to give differentiated dimension to the roofs in order to increase the legal least height and air volume that is dependent of the maintenance of part of the existing flagstone for structural reasons.
