Estoril Sol Residence, Portugal | Gonçalo Byrne

Project Details:
Location: Estoril, Cascais – Portugal
Architects: Gonçalo Byrne
Photographer: Joao Morgado

The new housing complex appears at the site of Hotel Estoril-Sol, a building of 20 floors from 1960′s, which was demolished to make way for this new construction. For its large volume and visibility on the seafront, the complex establishes a new relationship with its surrounding territory, reshaping and qualifying this important entrance to the village of Cascais. The 15-storey buildings are founded on a common platform that hosts access, services and leisure areas. Its 110 rooms stand out for the large variation and careful detailing.
