  • 3. photo: José Carlos Nunes de . photo: José Carlos Nunes de . Oliveira Oliveira Porto Cenário Bar . Address R. do Monchique 68 4450-394 Porto Portugal . This project concerns the conversion of a small 50m2 restaurant into a Lounge Bar, at the riverside front in Porto, Massarelos. Plastered stucco boards were placed around the walls, hanging over a contrasting dark wooden floor. The customer’s area was separated from the services and supporting spaces such as the sanitary, the kitchen and the DJ cabin, installed in half of the former restaurant kitchen. After all, the DJ is the new coking master over here. These “fleshy” spaces got moulded in orange photo: José Carlos Nunes de Oliveira juicy colours, contrasting with the white/beige painted main room. The relation with the beautiful outside landscape was improved by emphasising the presence of the 4 existing windows as absences in the walls, inviting for contemplation. The lighting as well the furniture was carefully chosen, out of vintage stores, in order to fulfil the client’s will of spending few and creating an atmosphere that could be cosy, slightly minimalistic and sophisticated at the same time. .

After Porto was selected one of the 2 cultural capitals of Europe in 2001, an international competition started, for a new concert hall to be positioned in the historical centre. The shape directly derived from ‘programmatic-piling-up’. Two shoe-box concert halls were piled first, the other public programs were added onto the shoe-boxes and the ‘remaining’ spaces between the public functions were filled up with secondary serving spaces, such as foyers, restaurant, terraces, technical spaces and vertical photo: Casa da Música transport. A continuous route connects all functions and ‘remaining spaces’ by stairs, platforms and escalators: the building becomes an architectural adventure. The loop creates the possibility to use it for festivals with simultaneous performances. Wave-like corrugated glass is used in both the 1300 seat grand auditorium and its smaller 350 seat counterpart. Through material transparency each space reveals its contents to the city; showing an array of performances and cultural events. . Project is public! . Completion 2005 . Floor area/size 22000 m² .

The O’Porto Blood Bank is built on a detached plot with an irregular polygon in the heart of a city block. The building-as-line runs through the polygon´s different directions searching its geometry. The Blood bank supports all activities of regional blood collection and analysis as well as its partition in 3 components (erythrocytes, plasma and platelets). These components are later photo: FG+SG to be distributed to hospitals and pharmaceutical industries. This typology is new and hardly tested. It has a great complexity due to permanent risk of blood contamination. Continuous scientific and technological developments force permanent alterations. It is therefore a building with an unstable interior, which will undergo frequent metamorphosis throughout its life. The building program is a linear sequential process (of blood disassembly). It suggests to be more adequate a low and fluid construction rather than a high building, as pointed out by the neighbouring housing buildings (5 and 6 levels). . Project is public! .

The bar “ar de rio” is a restaurant and cafeteria with a terrace, situated on the southern river banks of the Douro. It’s a compact pavilion designed by Francisco Vieira de Campos and Cristina Guedes (Menos é Mais) that’s most noticeable for its cohesive architectural and structural concept. The «beehive» construction system – in hexagonal modules of solid steel – becomes the photo: Carlos Dias formal pattern for the building’s external and internal texture. The efficiency of the design is also revealed by its lightness, reducing vertical structures to a minimum and allowing greater transparency. The final result is striking for its abstract quality and expressive potential for invisibility or opacity. . Project is public! . Completion 2008 . Architect Menos é Mais . Contributed by MI_MOA .

The project mentioned here was included in the design as an observation post to watch the construction works on the bridge. The structure has been renovated by architect Miguel Tomé and transformed into a restaurant and bar. The building is undoubtedly one of the architectural gems of Porto, but still undervalued. Perhaps this is due to the fact that the initial project was designed by a civil engineer, although one of the most notable in Portugal. . Project is public! . photo: Miguel Coelho Completion 1963 .
