Campo Alegre

The office building located in Campo Alegre, in Porto, will feature a significant intervention, creating a highly sustainable and smart office building that aims to become a reference project in the city.

The project will use sustainable solutions – materials and technology – to reduce the building’s environmental impact and increase energy efficiency.

Around the building and located on different levels, we can find some terraces as exterior and unique leisure areas. The rooftop offers an exclusive 360º view all over the Oporto and the Douro River.

Recognising the emblematic value of this building, the intervention sought to preserve its memory without neglecting the urgent improvements and modernisation. The building’s rehabilitation is essential for the preservation of its architectural heritage and the collective memory of the place.

The new façade solution plays with the vertical and horizontal fins, with variable alignments depending on the solar exposure. The platform on the two lower floors is supporting the upper office tower.

When we enter the building, the double height ceiling main lobby offers a very comfortable and light space. The lighting and the architecture elements (such as the opaque screens on both levels or the artistic existing mural) turn the double height ceiling into a perfect and more human scale.
