Location Douro Valley, Portugal
Architect Ooda Architects
Type Architectural competition
The architectural proposal by Ooda Architects is inspired by the local landscape and clean, geometric architecture of early modernism, featuring overlapping concrete volumes that seem to mimic the form of sloping vineyards. Douro Valley is a UNESCO-listed site in central-northern Portugal, best known for its picturesque hilly landscape and for being one of the oldest wine regions in the world.
“The proposal intends to overlap and conceptually combine a set of references and inspirations that arose when analyzing the place and thinking about the uniqueness in which it is inserted."
