contributed by Joao_Sousa

This building is part of the restauration of an old building that faced the square in front of the castle of Moura. The intervention meant to create new façades in some of the historical streets, while providing commercial space on the inside. The main feature of this building is the way the façade is constructed. By using simple openings, the architects created a façade system that tends to be very expressive on sunny summer days. In the interior, a public patio was created resembling a cloister.


Joao says:
bela porcaria que está nessa grande obra. Uma zona comercial que ninguiem sabe como entrar. A arquitectura tem que ser funcional, coisa que não é aqui. apenas rabiscos pseudo bonitos que nada de util têm. Perguntem aos proprietários
