The context in its distances, alignments, proportions, define the mass. The program determines the project. A meeting centre for large gatherings or small groups. The ceiling, in its variations and geometry answers the program. A complete horizontal clearness outlines the space as a whole, which as atmosphere opposes to the weight of the vertical voids. The support functions deepen the external and peripheral wall. The final image is determined by the interaction of internal space and occupied façade.

O contexto nas suas distâncias, alinhamentos, escala, definem o volume. O programa determina o projecto. Um centro de convívio para grandes reuniões ou pequenos grupos no dia-a-dia. O tecto, na sua variação e geometria responde ao programa. Uma completa transparência horizontal une todo o espaço, que como vivência se diferencia no “peso” dos vazios verticais. As funções de apoio dão espessura à parede exterior. A sua imagem é determinada pela interacção do sistema espacial com a fachada habitada.
