LiGA . building
The Liga das Associções Mutualistas do Porto offers its users a wide range of medical care services. These new facilities will concentrate in one complex structure all the services spread over the city center - pharmaceutical, physiotherapeutic, dental and medical clinics, combined with offices, administration, and a small cafeteria.
Formerly a bank featuring a shop on the ground floor, a covered gallery, and a crossing to the block center, it now offers a continuous street front, completely restored, where the original materiality has been retaken, and expressive elements of the facade have been rehabilitated. On the inside, the demands of healthcare services play soberly with pre-existence, taking full advantage of a contained, still full of natural light, space.
