A Sandeira Lumière

This is the second A Sandeira café, resulting from the client’s intention to expand the business. The starting point of the intervention was finding a common identity between the original café,  which we had finished some time previously, and this one. However, the characteristics of the building where this café is located, constructed in the second half of the 20th century, are completely different to those of the other building, which is far older.

The shopping galleries specified certain guidelines which had to be followed, particularly the light grey tone of the walls and floor. The project involved combining these constraints with the beautiful but distressed timber elements similar to those used in the previous project.
