Axis Hotel


A new exclusive hotel between the River Lima and the Mount St Luzia, right to the side of the park of Viana do Castelo, and 5 minutes away of the historical center of the city. It's one of the most modern 4 stars hotels of Portugal with 88 rooms and comfortably equipped suites, with Wi-Fi, interactive LCD´s with several TV channels and the last cinematographic editions and games. This work, by architect Jorge Albuquerque, of the Portugese firm VHM, is made with selected materials, like glass, aluminium and stone. The hotel has a separate business center with 5 meeting rooms, and an exhibition room with a bar.

function            cafe, shop

The layout proposals for this cake shop were based on the concept of "how to enjoy the products prepared at the bakery". For this reason, a sitting area with tables and movable chairs to leisurely sit and enjoy the outer view, and a 'faster traffic area' with high tables and chairs were created.

Restaurant in Brufe

António Portugal & Manuel Reis




The building stands in a site descending in slopes towards the Homem river, near the small village of Brufe. The roof continues the natural platform of the access road, on witch the volume with service entrance is the only mark, related to the natural rocky heights. The main entrance is located in the platform below with service areas against the terrain and public spaces wide open to the landscape. The orientation and location searches for an intimate relation with the context, as well as the choice of materials: granite (in walls) and wood in the non-glazed part of the main elevation, which continues the horizontal plane of the exterior deck.
