HOUSE OF TALES

The House of Tales “arts & residence”is a charming house in the emerging Cedofeita area, in central Porto.

It is the result of a restoration project to convert a 19th-century bourgeois home to host demanding a discerning guests in an atmosphere of striking visial imagery.

An innovative project which could only have been possible in the urban setting of such a city.


TYPOGRAPHY OF TALES

The Typography of Tales project was born in March 2019, and was awarded as a Public Interest Set due to it’s high architectural and urban value, that pictures the city as a paradigmatic example of Porto’s social organization in the 19th-century.

Here, industrial buildings coexist, as is the case of the Typography of Tales, with other architectural styles, such as neo-classicism, fine arts, and some examples of modern architecture.

House of Tales

The planned layout includes, as was formerly the case, an entrance hall with vertical access to every floor of the building. At the focal point of this vertical space, a skylight was designed to capture light from the outside, and enable visual contact with the sky.

The house’s social areas (reception, lounge, library, dining room and garden) are arranged throughout floors 0 and -1, with the upper floors reserved for the private rooms.

Every room is different, having been furnished with vintage furniture and other design items.

Typography of Tales

The project is born from the restoration process of an unused factory from early 19th-century, preserving the foundations from the building.

The project is based on the ideia of a modern intervention in the original factory space, making it come together with a new purpose, as a guest house.

Although the façades and interior of the building have been restored, the restoration process has been faithful to the original elements of the building.
