Lello e Irmão

The baroque book shop

We continue our trip in Porto, at the visit to the over 100 year old book shop Lello e Irmão. Founded by the brothers José and António Lello in 1906, the book shop is famously know world wide for its incredible fantasy like charm. As the centerpiece in the bookshop is the charismatic staircase, that leads you to the second floor, with magnificent views of the beautiful stained glass window with the families motto ‘Decus in labore’ – which means ‘dedication to the work’. This is truly a stop worth while for any kind of book lover.

Studytrip to Vejle

Archipress M took a small trip to Vejle 

This year, three more waves were added to the ‘Bølgen’ in Vejle thus completing the project. Yesterday we went to visit it and it is safe to say that this is a one of a kind project! ‘Bølgen’ is also featured in ‘Global Danish Architecture No. 1’, which is an easy-to-wrap present and fits perfectly underneath the Christmas Tree. Go grab yours on the shop.
