Edificio Nautico is a building located in Cascais, a Portuguese village related to the sea. It holds a dominating position in the block, it’s the new identity of the area: the ground floor has an undulating arcade reminiscent of the sea's swell, providing different light scenarios and light stains. The façade reminds an important part of Portuguese cultural heritage, it draws ceramic blinds that define privacy and provide light protection. It has 29104 ceramic pieces, distributed in 856 panel blinds (fixed and pivot) with 4 mt high each. The blue colour reminds the ocean that surrounds us.
