In Portugal the production of virgin olive oil has been an agricultural activity for centuries. However, since the industrialization of this activity, architecture has not been essential to commercial success, while expressing the landscape in a way that was appropriate to the rural setting.
而在本项目中，建筑师让Oliveira da Serra橄榄油工厂仿佛在树丛之中冒出头来，以一种蓄势待发的姿态，准备处理橄榄树上凝结出的宝贵“汁液”。橄榄油生产季往往是当地一年中气候最不宜人也最不利于工作的季节，但无论天气如何，这座建筑中的生产都将紧锣密鼓、昼夜不停地持续三个月。
The Oliveira da Serra olive mill was designed to appear in the middle of olive groves as if it had emerged from the trees ready to process the precious "sap". Olive oil is produced during the season when the climate is most inhospitable and unfavourable for work. Whatever the weather, intense activity continues day and night for three months.
The topographical transformation is carried out with the construction of exposed concrete walls that cut through the olive grove in an essential way and are capable of defining all the necessary installations on the perimeter of the building.
The aim of this building is to efficiently synthesize the complex production process. The building's program dictated the succession of spaces with great clarity, parallel to each other, which correspond to the optimization of the olive oil production phases.
In the building's epicenter, above the employees' sector, an area for visiting the mill itself was set up, which receives groups outside the daily operation and from where there is a cross-sectional view of all activities.
The building's construction system is based on prefabricated concrete pieces, which structure and cover it. At the high level, when the volume extends beyond its limits, creating large exterior covered surfaces, it is structured in steel and covered with an Aquapanel system. The "huge lanterns" are covered in olive oil-colored honeycomb polycarbonate.
Large roofs with lighting cover external work areas that function like beacons in the plain of the Alentejo, providing a permanent new interpretation of rural work.
