Travelling showroom

studio patricia meneses as Architects

Itinerary showroom that explores the relation between space, transparency and light made for the Portuguese fashion designers Dino Alves, Katty Xiomara, Luis Buchinho and Storytailors.


One of the essential characteristics in the Portuguese cities is the intensity of the light: light in their streets, their facades, in their people, in their horizon.


Inspired from the bright light of Portugal and from a particular typology of a door with an elliptic geometry from the Barrio Alto of Lisbon (an area in central Lisbon), the project interprets the door in a series of vertical suspended plans made of translucent white screens that create a sequence of spaces, where the visitor is introduced into a visual game between the interior and exterior. Directional white light from uplighters and downlighters adds to the sense that the showroom is an ethereal, floating space.


The showroom visited several city's in Portugal: Cascais, Porto, Algarve and Madeira.
