Sá da Bandeira / PF Architecture Studio

Sá da Bandeira’s building was our first project in the Porto downtown context, having been in standby for several years, its construction began five years after the project was started. This waiting period proved to be fundamental in the outcome of the project since it contributed to a reflection on how to project in a preexistence. The initial project affirmed in a very radical way the relationship between the existent and the new, intention that lost force as the construction moved on, ending in a much more sensible and discrete exercise that almost annuls the presence of the architect in the final result.
