location Matosinhos
function pavilion
contributed by Chris_Luth

This restaurant (also known as Casa de Chá Boa-Nova) was finished in the year Siza turned thirty. Boldly positioned on the rocks that form the coast of Matosinhos, on the outskirts of Porto, this beautifully detailed masterpiece offers beautiful meals as well. Make sure to open the huge windows!

Now it is said that it's being refurbished, but in fact it is almost in ruins. There was no one there and I couldn't go inside. The whole house just seemed kind of shabby... Since the notice on the wall did not show when it would open again, I suggest if you do not have enough time you can skip this one on your architecture trip.

As in all Siza's works, you have to walk thru to capture all aspects of the "Casa de Chá da Boa Nova". As we arrive to the car park we see the entrace but we only reach it if we climb the stairs that directs the eyes to the sea before turning 90 degrees and again see the entrance, a very low porch protecting you from the north wind and wich wich directs visitors towards the interior, turing left to the sea.
Stepping in, there's two windows: one at the eye level where you can see the ocean horizon and far and down, at the and of the stairs, the rocks and the waves.
The two main rooms have roofs descending towards the sea and the low west sun, protecting the long horizontal windows.
At a detail level the woodwork has a craftsmen feeling.
The furniture is Siza's work too.
