RESIDENCY by Pico do Refúgio

The request was given by Pico do Refúgio, to develop a set of pieces for their specific context of this rural tourism space, from local materials - mainly the vulcanic stone in Island of S. Miguel in the arcuipelago of Azores. The island consists of four large stratovolcanoes, in which its magmatic composition ranges from different typologies of Basalt.

The initial focus of the Residency went through a process of research that was transversal to the different properties of BASALT and divided itself between visual features and the geological characteristics of the different types of local stones and other local materials such as Cryptomeria - the Island’s wood.



Collab with João Valente and Dion Soethoudt
