Edifício Monchique

Text of RAR Imobiliária

  • Viver sobre o Douro | Living over the River Douro

    Perfeitamente enquadrado na envolvente natural e histrica do lugar, orientado a sul, o conjunto residencial MONCHIQUE surge imponente sobre a margem do rio Douro. Situado em Massarelos, numa rea classificada como Zona Histrica do Porto, as habitaes sugerem um estilo de vida nico.

    Perfectly set within the natural and historical surroundings, facing south, the MONCHIQUE residential complex stands strikingly on the banks of the River Douro. Located in Massarelos, in an area classified as the Historic Centre of Oporto, the homes suggest an unique lifestyle.

  • The setting of the project is one of the elements that distinguish the Monchique enterprise. How important were the surroundings when creating this project? This location implies an unique responsibility, since it is part of the Historic Centre of Oporto, classified by UNESCO as World Heritage. More so, the location has a significant natural setting, where the wooded slopes meet the dynamic level of the river.The projects first expression is designed by the special topography of this stretch of the banks of the River Douro, by the urban terracing, created by the uneven meeting of Rua da Restaurao and Rua de Monchique. Then, from the historical sediment created by the sites origins, the project accepts the changing character of the city and uses it to rediscover and reinforce its relationship with the river.

    Differentiated and innovative, this is one of the most emblematic housing projects in the Historic Centre of Oporto. What aspects of this residential complex give it an exclusive character? The buildings echo the volume of the former constructions and restore, for common use, the faade facing the river bank and the chimney, being both iconic and affirmative. This has resulted in a contemporary urban space, which embraces its industrial heritage and blends this with the lifestyle offered by these new spaces.In defining the homes, there were three main intentions: to guarantee the adequate relationship between these spaces with the natural and urban landscape, and to clearly state the contemporary nature of the environment and to personalise the different types of home, thus avoiding repetition and offering unique homes, with different dimensions and characteristics.

    Usufruindo de uma localizao mpar, Monchique reintrepreta o passado gerando uma nova forma de

    habitar. As palavras do arquitecto Vtor Carvalho Arajo, autor deste invulgar projecto arquitectnico,

    reflectem o impacto decisivo da obra no contexto histrico da cidade do Porto.

    Making the most of its privileged location, Monchique applies the past, creating a new way of living.

    The words of the architect, Vtor Carvalho Arajo, author of this remarkable architectural project,

    reflects the decisive impact of this enterprise on the historical context of the city of Oporto.

Depois, a partir das sedimentaes construdas pela histria do lugar, o projecto aceita o carcter mutante da cidade e utiliza-o para redescobrir e reforar a relao com o rio.

  • In 2006 the Monchique enterprise was awarded the SIL prize (Salo Imobilirio de Lisboa Lisbon Real Estate Exhibition) for the category Best Real Estate Project of the Year. What criteria led to this recognition? The recognition given with the award of the Best Real Estate Project prize, was a result from a set of principles defined by RAR Imobiliria and the Architect: the unique character of the site forced the enhancement of its potential and required the sharp intervention of urban design and a definition of the spaces to be inhabited, with a quality environment and a rigorous choice of materials. These principles come close to the evaluation criteria defined in the regulations of this competition suitability, quality and architectonic expression, impact on the environment, innovation and sustainability.

    Merging into the urban fabric dominated by the river,

    this architectural enterprise with the recognised value

    of its heritage, forms a housing complex comprised of

    three connected buildings, inspired by a permanent

    dialogue between the past and the future, luxurious

    interiors and the unique surrounding landscape.

    The buildings explore the layout of this site, unfolding

    according to a greater transparency in the directions that

    follow the suns movements, creating spacious openings

    and exterior spaces facing the River Douro.

    Inside the homes, the comfort offered is the result of the

    unusual dimensions of the spaces and the performance

    ensured by the insulation provided from heat, water, light

    and noise. Light reigns, reinforcing the spaciousness of the

    enterprise dominated by the pure white and the wooden

    floors, by the discerning selection of the finishes and the

    strict control of the building techniques and processes

    employed.

    It is more than just an original architectural concept; the

    MONCHIQUE enterprise proposes a new way of inhabiting

    historic spaces and restoring part of the citys priceless

    heritage.

    No interior das habitaes, o conforto resulta das

    invulgares dimenses dos espaos e do desempenho

    proporcionado pela proteco trmica, hdrica, lumnica e

    acstica. A luz impera reforando a amplitude do espao

    dominado pelo branco puro e piso em madeira, pela

    escolha selectiva de acabamentos e o controlo rigoroso das

    tcnicas e processos construtivos.

    Mais do que um conceito arquitectnico original, o

    empreendimento MONCHIQUE prope uma nova forma de

    habitar os espaos histricos, devolvendo cidade parte

    da sua inestimvel herana.
