Menos é Mais
location Vila Nova de Gaia
function bar
contributed by MI_MOA

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 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.
