Text description provided by the architects. Foz do Douro, the magical place where the river merges with the sea, honoring the history and tradition of a people closely related to marine navigation, a private investor plans to build a new marina.

Installed at the edge of Gaia, this new equipment clearly exceeds its nautical component, creating a set of complementary services and activities, relevant to the economic and social value of the urban area in which it  belongs. The organization and hierarchy of this new space is achieved through the implementation of three new buildings.

A linear building, which stretches along the existing car park, defining the boundary between pedestrian and automobile, in balance with two perpendicular buildings that are suspended in the slope, linking paths at the highest level with the existing marginal route at the lower level.

Distributed by a two-storey volumetry, the longitudinal building integrates the reception, changing rooms, workshops, administration offices, secretarial, two training rooms, meeting room and a set of commercial spaces. The two perpendicular buildings, also with a two-storey height, will be occupied by a restaurant on the first building and a spa/gym in the second building.
