Housing for affordable rent, Virtudes
HC. Porto

Porto, Portugal


Francisco Rocha Soares is an architecture project for the rehabilitation and reconstruction of a group of buildings for affordable rent, located on Rua Francisco Rocha Soares (nº 36 to 48), in the parish of Miragaia, União de Freguesias do Centro Histórico do Porto.

The intervention is based on respect for the site, reusing its pre-existing buildings as much as possible and requalifying the space between the complex and the Wall, demolishing precarious constructions and treating the wall.

The proposal presents a diverse set of typologies, with different spatial qualities in order to better respond to the program.
