Located in Porto`s municipality, College Cebes is a new private secondary school that makes a statement for itself. Built by OVAL – Avelino Oliveira the Cebes College features minimalist aesthetic values, using residential characteristics for the volume and contemporary style in the interior design whilst maintaining the school assets. It has been designed in this manner to be integrated in the surroundings, single family luxury homes dominating the area.
Architects are further relating:
“We maintain very distinctive identity on Avenue Marechal Gomes da Costa (the surrounding characterised by this avenue, with an urban character of low density allows easy access to major highways and ensures stability of the building pattern of the area), and created a proposal for a volume that integrates elements of popular architecture.
While the volume and the interior design are beautiful, elegant and fresh we think that “all stark white” attitude is inappropriate for a college, such a interior design is often found in hospitals. In a school the interior should evoke and summon creativity, freshness and curiosity, determining the student of any age to participate in activities and to be enthusiast while doing so. What do you think about this college wrapped in contemporary style? Would you like to take a class in here?
