Project description of Living Famalicão, Portugal by dEMM arquitectura:
Living Famalicão is located on a traditionally commercial street in the North Portugal small town of Famalicão. As a consolidated urban area, the facade is brought to the plot limit, reinforcing the street profile. The building is composed by five shops on the ground floor and 35 apartments spread over 6 floors above. The apartments share a common atrium, in the ground floor, from where three vertical accesses distribute to the upper floors displaced along an open corridor to the interior garden. The rectilinear regularity of the facade geometry, evidencing the balconies with shadows, is contrasted by the projection of the interior area of three apartments, characterizing the street corner with a sculptural approach.
