|:||The project of the Hotel Tipografia do Conto, recently nominated for the EU Mies Award 2022, is a multifunctional space that links residential tourism and cultural events. It comprises ten rooms and a wide ground floor with multipurpose areas. Its architecture incorporates several memoirs of a pre-existing building and avoids the generic tourist offer which has been gentrifying many European cities (like Porto). This former Typographic Workshop was transformed into a domestic-scale structure in order to include the new Hotel rooms. The project refuses any kind of architectural pastiche; instead, it recovers remnants of elements of that earlier condition integrating them into a contemporary design. Additional images available.|
