Congress of Bottles by Tiago do Vale Arquitectos

Name: Congress of Bottles

Designer: Tiago do Vale Arquitectos

Location: Braga, Portugal

Year: 2014

Congress of Bottles is a minimalist interior located in Braga, Portugal, designed by Tiago do Vale Arquitectos. Located in the outskirts of the city of Braga, in northern Portugal, next to Minho’s University, the client required a system to display over a thousand different wine and spirits bottles, designed in a modular fashion and capable of being adapted to different locations. At the same time, the location the client brought to the table had interesting characteristics that asked for a specific, non-generic intervention: a beautiful natural setting by the Este river, facing the sunset, already a leisure site favored by the city and the University’s students in particular; and a store with two glass fronts that presented an unusual opportunity to play with the inside/outside relationship.
