The site is located between Rua de Gondarém and Avenida de Montevidéu, two important axis of Foz do Douro, an exclusive residential sea front area in Porto. The project contemplates two collective housing buildings, one to the East (block A) and another to the West, on the first sea line (block B). A pre-existing family house, dating back to the nineteenth century, is located in the eastern front, facing Rua de Gondarém; both its façade and pitched roof are preserved, as the memory of the bourgeois houses that once dominated the area. Above it, rises block A, the tallest of the two. Block B sits between the large manor houses that make up this sea front, taking its roof’s shape from their own pitched roofs. Both buildings enjoy wide sea views, as well as several shared amenities such as an event space, a garden and a gym, in the lower floor.
