MATOSINHOS and PORTO | Port of Leixões Cruise Port | U/C

The passenger terminal of the Leixões cruise harbor will certainly be an architectural reference in the Oporto region of Portugal.







The structural design was carried out by Newton-Engineering Consultants, Inc.. Compliance with a number of strict specifications had to be guaranteed. These arose from the innovative architectural shape designed by Luís Pedro Silva which proved extremely challenging and will result in a unique piece of modern cutting edge concrete structures. Also, the location on the edge of the South breakwater posed serious difficulties due to the 800m distance offshore.

The unique geometry of the building relies on thin concrete walls which behave as deep beams winding around the entire building and reaching each of the three piers. These thin concrete walls present double curvature, height ranging from 6 up to 14 m, and variable lengths that span, at certain points, more than 40m. They provide support to the structural slabs, but also sometimes serve merely aesthetic purposes. The structure of this building, about 30 m in height, with a basement and four upper floors formed by flat slabs, is supported by concrete staircases and elevator shafts as well as large diameter slanted columns.


Data of the work:
Year: start of construction in 2012
Client: Administração dos Portos do Douro e Leixões
Location: Porto de Leixões, Matosinhos, Portugal
Architectural design: Luís Pedro Silva
Structural design: Newton Engineering Consultants

And here are recent photos of the construction, which is being ended!

it should be finished by this time, but with all the storm coming up, let's see. There are a lot of cruises scheduled for this time of the year.

Taken today, very early in the morning! The building's tridimensional ceramic tiles were shimmering in the early morning light. Quite beautiful.
