#Luiis_3x ] Lisbon’s Vertigo Climbing Center invites visitors to climb all over their new caf... [ #Luispokel ]
Quintela and Simon wanted to create a multi-use space that echoed the vigor of the Vertigo Climbing Center, which itself is an adaptive reuse project which revamped a disused warehouse. The design duo decided to expand on the climbing gym itself, creating a pavilion that separates the center’s café, but can also be utilized like the rest of the facility. Inside, the red timber grid structure houses a small café area that is separate from the gym area with a cast concrete floor. The planks of wood on the inner walls are flat, creating a continuous surface that creates a more uniform, contained space for the café.
