4000 Atelier

Saturday the 25th was the 8th open working day in Arrebita's office for the 4000 Atelier event.
We took advantage of this event to have an office spring cleaning. Now if you visit the office you will find a clean blackboard with beautiful drawings, a new panel to let you write your impressions about the project, and a table with the partner material samples that we will be used in the building ! 

Spring Cleaning

So, architects, students, partners, kids from the neighbourhood or simply curious people, passed (through our open doors) to our nice office to discover the project or to keep up to date with the work we are doing here. Different presentations were given:

  • A general presentation about Arrebita; the origin of the project, how it was born and how it works nowadays
  • A presentation of the building (located to reboleira 42): its history, its actual condition, and the refurbishment planned
  • A presentation of A!BOX: a modular box for different functions

Presentation of Arrebita
People stayed around after the presentation to have a look on the drawing, to ask some questions, or just to talk with us about our impressions and our experiences. A great time to exchange ideas ! 

After Meeting Exchange

We also had time to visit some other architecture ateliers and to discover the rich architecture community in Porto. This day finished by a dinner between people from Arrebita around the (supposedly) best Francesinha of Porto and then with a cocktail for all the participants of the 4000 Atelier. A way to know and to have contact with the other Ateliers of Porto!
