Sculpted Facades
Tampografia | Nogueira, Portugal

Tampografia office building is located in Nogueira da Maia, on the outskirts of Porto, which has been implementing a strategic urban plan aimed at providing optimal conditions for companies and entrepreneurs. The goal was to integrate the building and respect the scale and architecture of its residential surroundings. In order to prevent a massive, heavy construction, it was key to design facades with a sense of dynamic movement, with light and shade and positive and negative forms. These contrasts reduce the scale of the building and disguise its functional character. The linear facades are interrupted by large-format openings, the jambs of which have varying angles so that light is funneled into the interior spaces. Dgrau specified Swisspearl panels for the exterior cladding right at the beginning of the design process. When comparing Swisspearl with similar materials, the architects saw significant advantages in terms of the quality of the product, range of colours, low maintenance, and durability of the material. Using two shades of grey, light on the facade walls and dark grey on the slanted window surrounds, accentuates openings and creates a sense of depth and contrast on the linear facades.
