Design Sketches

 

2017 Competition entry for Porto Art School. Site is next to Porto Photography Museum and adjacent public square.

On ground floor the building accommodates an entrance foyer, offices, a restaurant and bar.  On the first floor there are 2 large North-facing studios and the basement accommodates lecture theatres, an exhibition space, services, lockers and storage.

The design endeavours to enrich the public space by adding social functionality and by setting up relationships with the historic landmarks around it.
