Text description provided by the architects. Architectural photographer Nelson Garrido shared with us an amazing set of photos for the Axis Viana Hotel by VHM in Viana do Castelo. This Business & Spa Hotel is an ode to cantilevering, as you can see on the section shown below.
The overlapping stacked volumes generate a series of different perspectives, ranging from a full box in a frontal view, to a complex column when seen from the sides. The 2 lower levels have a concrete structure, with the rest of the boxes resolved in a steel structure sitting on top of it.
More photos and the section after the break.
