Medical Office
(Central Plaza Building)
Maia
2000 - 2001

The space of the medical offices, although inside a building, does not mean it has no “place”, which does not necessarily mean this place has to coincide with the building.
Defining the “nature” of this place and naturally the relation it keeps with the pre-existence are aspects that the master plan of the project should contemplate.
In that sense it seems necessary to create an almost backdrop that remotes to the exterior, to another dimension that transcends the building itself and has the city as its reference.
It is this way that all the effort is concentrated on space and its definition, but also on its significance – everything happens, more by summoning than by affirming.
Therefore the detail should be discrete, almost imperceptible, until it dissolves, so that silence is obtainable.
Only in this way can space be a unique and indivisible whole, but also be plural in its capacity to evoke.
Then there is light that unites all, but also vibrates like silence.
