Conde São Bento Building

Can a façade take part in a religious procession?

The Rua Conde São Bento is one of the main streets in the city of Trofa. In August, when the procession of Nossa Senhora das Dores (Our Lady of Sorrows) passes through, there is a tradition of hanging bedspreads from the windows. A decorative movement of the street that creates a unique setting. A private gesture for public fruition was the starting point of the project. The construction budget being low meant a stronger need to find in the usual construction elements something that could be handled in a special way. The guardrails in the main façade were chosen as the distinguishing factor.
