MasterPlan

The location that was given to us to develop was in Caneças, Odivelas, a place characterized by its sub-urban inconsistency, where one can find time layers with no planning or structure. There are two places that really highlight the character of this location; the little square in the old part of town and Quinta dos Castanheiros (a big green area). The first area mentioned gives this old town its soul, the essence. The second area mentioned provides some “air”, an open space in the new area of this town.
