The Bornaria Building with the work almost completed

The Bornaria building located near the University of Minho, in Guimarães, is nearing completion.

The building represents an urban importance that attracts growth for the city. One of the objectives is to satisfy the need for accommodation and the business created by the presence of students attending the university. The MCA Group hopes to make this area more dynamic.

Bornaria is located on a hill and has open visibility. The building stands out for the contrast between the lower part of the facade, which establishes a direct link with the public space with a more neutral expression, using cement and black plate panels and the part of the patio marked by transparencies.

The upper part has hanging balconies and floating planes covered by steel plates to give it a modern design.
