Casa do Conto | Hotel

I found a gorgeous residence / hotel, Casa do Conto (House of Tales) in Portugal. The minimal / white / concrete sign on the ceiling attracted me to visit their official website and read the story of the building.

"The arts and residence Casa do Conto (House of Tales) is a charming building in the emerging Cedofeita area in central Porto, Portugal. Casa do Conto offers an innovative hotel concept - arts & residence - providing a personalized style of residence for guests who wish to combine resting with the enjoyment of Oporto’s cultural offer, or for those who wish to create, display or even debate art working. For this reason, Casa do Conto offers a regular schedule of cultural events, involving different artists, designers, curators, groups and art institutions. For the opening period, Casa do Conto established partnership with the art gallery and bookshop Inc. based in Oporto."

I appreciate their concept to re-renovate the building.

“Casa do Conto embodies a unique story of life, which is, after all, the history of the city itself. The House highlights Oporto’s XIX century domestic architecture, solemn and vertical, carved by the scars of a time that mediates its decline and rebirth, the memory of the past and the desire for the future, the granite stone of the old facades and the new concrete of staircases and ceilings. It is, indeed, a kind of "fossil architecture" that comes to life.
Graved by various texts, in low relief, covering six separate rooms, these ceilings narrate the changes undergone by the concept of “house” and of this house in particular. "

最近上網揾到呢間位於葡萄牙的小酒店, 佢既型格設計加上獨特的天花concret 刻字令我忍唔住要click入去睇,背後更有個有趣既歷史故事才有呢個concept去設計一座迷人的建築。

原來房子裡面既天花刻著各種淺浮雕文本,共覆蓋6個單獨的房間,天花板敘述的 “家” 的概念,特別是呢間屋的經歷的變化。本身建築體現了一種獨特的人生故事,畢竟是城市本身的歷史。他們說:”這區建築突出波爾圖的十九世紀國內的體系結構,莊嚴的和垂直的,一時間,介導佢既衰落與重生,在過去的記憶和未來的慾望,在花崗岩石的老門面和新的具體的傷痕刻在樓梯和天花板。這確實係一種“化石架構”來生活。“

我好欣賞酒店Casa do Conto還提供了一個定期的文化活動,涉及不同的藝術家,設計師,策展人,團體和藝術機構。增加對外的互動,對酒店多一份親切感。


香港有好多Services apartment 或者 小酒店,但設計卻沒有意思,間間都靚but 如果個設計有意思又能攪下小活動,文化交流下,又可增加marketing 廣大的認知,唔係only賺錢而賺錢既,咁先有真正生活品味。
