Casa Da Conto

May 29, 2012

Casa Da Conto, (the story house), is a hotel with a story, not just conceptual but in the most literal use of the word, the stories are written on the walls.

In the Portuguese city Porto, in an area filled with galleries and cultural centers, stands an historical 19th century building; its added value is the respect to the Portuguese history and culture.

The architects exposed the original architecture, preserved it, and added the stories on modern concrete ceilings.

Six stories by local authors were engraved as homage to the classic art of relief.

The hotel continues to preserve the concept by having the lobby used as a local artistic and literary gathering venue.
