BONFIM RESIDÊNCIAS
HOUSING PROJECT IN A SLOPED SITE
PORTO, PORTUGAL
2020

An abandoned gross plot in the uppermost part of Porto’s booming district: Bonfim; a challenging sloped-terrain with a level difference up to twenty-four me-ters; and an hybrid residencial program that should offer diverse typologies and thrilling common areas.

MASTER PLAN

“Eu acho que a grande força do teu projeto é uma ideia de imagem para aclamar aquela primeira ideia de ligar entre esses corpos; funciona encosta e depois consegues fazer com essa ideia, um edifício que funciona muito bem, muito ligado, muito claro...”

Manuel Aires Mateus, presentation May 18th 2020

Inspired on Porto's sloped entrances, the access is found between a monumental staircase and a long ramp
