Casa da Moagem

Conversion into a house of culture.
Casa da Moagem

An old factory gives birth to the Casa da Moagem in Fundão. A new arts and crafts centre, which seeks to preserve the collective memory of the inhabitants, giving new cultural life to the city. The existing buildings that can be recovered join together in a shared route through the construction of a new building.
The historical memory of each building is ensured by differentiation in design, materials and colour.
