LOIOS Recovery is a renovation project carried out by ODDA.
LOIOS Recovery by ODDA:
“LOIOS contains 18 housing units for tourists and students in a 1500 sqm (16,146 sqft) building within a centralized location in Porto.
One of the most demanding tasks in Porto nowadays is the intervention on the major amount of older and historical buildings of Porto downtown which are unoccupied in large percentage of the central urban fabric. Responsible management of these structures can positively affect the built environment, conservation of resources with social and economic benefits.
Therefore the historic elevations were restored and the ground level retail will be topped with five storeys divided into four stacked residences.
Ensuring the spaces fulfill the needs of modern day tenants, a large-scale modular furniture piece will integrate a kitchen, storage, seating, bed and a bathroom.
Traditional ceramic paintings on church panels will be turned into digitized image and applied as a perforated surface. Additional measures include paints, waxes and varnishes with vegetable bases, natural resins and mineral pigments.”
