Cooper Residence – Next to Porto wine cellars
Residential apartment building in the historical part of Vila Nova de Gaia, in the Port Cellars area.
In the same place where Port Wine barrels and casks were once crafted, on the hill of Serra do Pilar, a new apartment building will be born - Cooper Residence.
An urban rehabilitation real estate project that aims to convert a former industrial warehouse, associated to the cooper industry, into a modern residential development.
While maintaining the original style of the port warehouses and traditional architecture of this area, which was once an industrial hub of the region - closely linked to the Port Wine, cooperage and ceramics industry, an apartment building with 23 residential units will be built, with all modern comfort, fully equipped and with top quality construction materials and finish
The location is well served by commercial stores and services in the nearby surrounding area.
Walking distance from Cooper Residence:
225m from Jardim do Morro
225m from Av. da República
350m from future World of Wine
350m from Metro station “Jardim do Morro” 400m from Ribeira de Gaia
500m from Bridge Luis I
1000m from Hospital V.N. de Gaia
The building has 6 floors, with two main fronts, one to Rua do Pilar and the other to Rua Particular João Félix, as well as a smaller front that borders an old traditional community washing tank, still in operation today.
Each front has distinct facades to maintain and leverage pre-existing architectural elements and to preserve the dominant architecture in both streets.
Between the two main buildings there will be a leisure common green zone, with natural plants.
Materials and finishes:
The upscale materials and finishes were chosen to reflect the heritage of the place, while always favoring comfort, energy efficiency, robustness and durability.
Whenever possible, and with the highest guarantee of quality, local brands were chosen.
We highlight the lifetime-guaranteed Hydrocork Wicanders (Arcadian Rye Pine) floors and the Recer ceramic floors in bathrooms and kitchen areas.
The main appliances, installed in all apartments, are from Sie- mens.
For water heating and environmental temperature and humid- ity control, the highest energy efficiency solutions have been favored through the use of heat pumps and air conditioning systems.
The windows are of the hopper / casement type, thermo-lac- quered aluminum framing, with “forge gray” color.
The project is expected to be completed by 3rd quarter of 2021
