Located in the center of the city of Porto, inserted in an area in transformation, this complex is an extension of a new green area that the city will have.
It is a senior university with a residence and is developed on a rugged terrain, both in terms of morphology and topography, with a difference in height between the two streets to which it faces, of 25 meters.
It was a challenge to develop such a specific program, where accessibility is privileged, in such a rugged terrain.
The buildings that interconnect, resolve these differences in levels, and allow access to several squares that interconnect with the city and the new park.
