GRAND PORTO MODERN

black tower of light

A modern styled solution finds its way atop an architectural structure dating back to the late 1800s in Porto, Portugal. The classic Grande Porto Hotel partnered with architects Cremascoli, Okumura & Rodrigues to refurbish its traditional accommodations with something more modern. Many may wonder what that black tower like structure is. Well, it turns out the slate “tower” is a great solution for the hotel by creating more space which is being used for a workout gym and small bar.

We like how Arch Daily describes it: “Although we may sometimes be partial to additions that blend with the existing, this project strongly creates its own identity, as it is an estranged element.  It doesn’t attempt to fool the observer as an original part of the hotel, but rather embraces its place in this contemporary era to add a new architectural statement to the traditional.” Click Read More for additional information and visit Arch Daily for more photos.
