Douro Palace Hotel Resort & Spa is located in Baião, over the Douro River, which is a very known tourist Portuguese region.
In order to respect the environment and historical heritage of the local, the project took advantage of an existing typical house, rehabilitating it and promoting its development along the terraced landscape, with a smooth integration of the new constructions.
The biggest challenge was the reconstruction of the existing building, preserving the stone masonry, and matching the new buildings and the ancient house. A steel solution was developed to respond to this complex challenge.
GEG was responsible for all specific engineering design and coordination.
