Avenida do Doutor Lourenço Peixinho is the main avenue in Aveiro, recognized as the Portuguese Venice, extending from the train station to Praça General Humberto Delgado, in the center of
City. About 1100 meters long, this artery rests on a straight axis of
about 30 meters wide, with four road lanes (two for each direction), separated
by a central wooded sign. In this central section there is also a bicycle path, created in
support for free BUGA bikes, a pioneering project in Portugal.
The corner building located between Avenida do Doutor Lourenço Peixinho and Rua Engenheiro Oudinot has a 1923 plan, designed by Jaime Inácio dos Santos, the building essentially reveals the eclecticism characteristic of many buildings by this architect, responsible for Aveiro's public works and author of a set of constructions that stand out both for their structures and ornamentation, especially with regard to the use of polychrome tiles on the facades, and which contributed to highlight the city in the panorama of pre-modern Portuguese architecture.
Erected in one of the main arteries of the city, and standing out in the set of neighboring buildings due to its imposing dimensions, the building is characterized by its formal balance, elegance in the treatment of the façades and the diversity of applied styles, namely the neoclassical notes. The apparent horizontality of the façades is challenged by vertical elements such as the circular turret with scaly dome that rips the roof, or the rhythm of the pilasters that accentuate the shop windows in the corner area, highlighted by the upper pediment with a classic inspired decoration from the same formal repertoire of polychrome tiles that top the main entrance. The rear façade features a large covered veranda supported by columns on a granite porch.
Surrounded by buildings of great architectural and heritage interest, and integrated in an area created, at the end of the 19th century, as an authentic boulevard where quickly the new commercial and industrial bourgeoisie of Aveiro, the building presents itself as an exemplary synthesis of the possibilities that Jaime Inácio dos Santos explored throughout his work, which gave him a unique plasticity and contemporary character.
