The House


Torrinha residents can stay in a 3 storey house, built in the late 19th century. The house welcomes its visitors with a traditional tiled facade, tall ceilings, and an authentic skylight above a wooden staircase. A characteristic area of the house is a large glass covered veranda, serving as a workspace with a great source of natural light or a gathering area. 


The house has a fully equipped kitchen with a small dining nook and two bathrooms with a bathtub, WC and a bidet. The house offers 5 single bedrooms and one double bedroom.

As many old houses in Porto, Torrinha house does not have central heating, electric heaters are provided during the winter season.

The residents are expected to share the common areas.


Torrinha residence provides resident artists with a shared studio. They can work and create in their rooms if their practice allows it. The studio is equipped with tables, chairs, shelves and easels. Artists are expected to share the studio on independent agreement amongst themselves. 


Residents are encouraged to organise open studios, workshops, talks, screenings, etc. in the Torrinha spaces. They can use the house for installing their work or holding a performance during an event.
