"Arquipelago" is the rehab of an old factory in a cultural art center with a concert hall. Located in Ribeira Grande (island of Sao Miguel in Azores / Portugal ) the new space is a platform to promote art & culture in the island. A sober and beautiful project designed by the atelier Menos é Mais arquitectos in collaboration with the architect Joao Mendes Ribeiro and nominated for the prize "Prémios Construir 2015".  Now the volcanic stone ( existent building) faces the abstract new building in concrete.
