A play of shadow and light
This striking new Arada Office in Portugal was designed by Nelson Resende and is located in Ovar
A recently released set of images from Joao Morgado - Architecture Photography highlight the constantly changing aspects of the new Arada Office in Portugal as the natural light changes throughout the day.
Commenting on the project Nelson Resende said: "The building is the result of the juxtaposition of a series of pure, little-tamed volumes, linked by necessity, but assuming its own identity. The result seeks, however, to be more than a sum, an idea of ??formulation that exposes without fear the crudeness of the essence as a possible way, the honesty of the simple forms, exposed without filters, in a game that emphasizes the dynamism, by the different rotation of the volumes, its different altimetry and solar exposition, allowing the creation of an object of easy apprehension and simultaneously of insinuated complexity, by the games of light/shadow that causes, by the apparent ambiguity of how it is shown, exposed in the volumetric formulation but reserved in the functional connection that establishes, filtered, with the surroundings."
