Gonçalo Byrne Arquitectos建筑事务所与FBA.合作，委托他们为Estoril-Sol Residence公寓大楼开发一套环境指示系统设计，由于该大楼地处于沿海对材料和工艺都要求非常严格，因此在导视设计当材用的是不锈钢烤漆结合了亚克力这种材料，黑、白和红搭调色，简洁稳重，室内的指示也应用了丝印在墙面上和通过立体的图形，最喜欢的还是小小门牌，大有讲究。
Estoril-Sol Residence is located in the Vale da Ribeira da Castelhana Valley – a very curious place due its microclimate. The relation between the ocean and the valley was the great challenge for Gonçalo Byrne, the architect responsible for this apartment complex.
“(…) The challenge I faced was to engage with this great unity between the Cliff, the Valley and Nature, articulating it as a sculpture facing the ocean.” Gonçalo Byrne
Due to the morphological constraints and, in particular, the proximity to the sea, – the challenge faced by the architect also became our own. The choice of materials for the signage system was determined by the need for materials with good resistance to the atmospheric conditions on the site. The bespoke signage system was produced from stainless steel plates and opaque white and black acrylic, creating a refined and elegant image, and language, through contrast. Outdoor components with incorporated lighting were designed in addition to the identification of specific interior rooms and spaces.
Van Condensed, designed specifically for use in signage by the portuguese type designer Ricardo Santos, was the chosen typeface for the project.
