Intervention on the Castelo Novo Castle

Working on heritage is a difficult exercise in balancing intrusion/statement and delicacy/abolishment. The work on Castelo Novo was intelligent enough to create that balance through a device which is nothing more than a boundary, a contour, which adapts and supports itself and turns into a stepped path, a bar, an area with a view, thereby stimulating the poetic relationships with the built heritage. At the end of the path, the device opens onto the magnificent panorama of the surrounding landscape.
