AIRES MATEUS

Aires Mateus is an Architecture practice based in Lisboa, Portugal, founded by Manuel Aires Mateus. We already talked about the studio for their “House in Leiria” project.

Located in Grândola, a small town in Portugal’s Setúbal district, the community meeting center has been designed as a monolithic, white structure with a trapeze-shaped plan. Sharp cuts into its façade provide entrances and windows that face the historic buildings next to the site. The single-storey building is characterized by its complex ceiling structure: the interior has natural light coming from openings in the roof, that create vertical voids in contrast with the space horizontality. The building includes an area for exhibitions, a cafeteria, and supporting sanitary facilities.
