Portugal-based architecture firm ADOFF Arquitetos has revamped a former oil mill in São Pedro Vale do Conde, Mirandela, transforming it into an exhibition space
Located in the interior north of portugal, Quinta Vale do Conde is a project by ADOFF Arquitetos that embraces the firm’s desire to transform buildings in the country into new offerings. The former oil mill is an exemplary building of popular architecture in the region of Trás-os-Montes thanks to its materiality and construction technique.
The architecture firm has created a new exhibition space, having restored the walls in shale rock by utilising the same construction techniques as the original space. Measuring 424 sq-m in size, the dialogue between the different materials – stone and concrete – clearly and intentionally mark the contrast between the pre-existent and the firm’s transformative approach.
