"Casa de Chá da Boa Nova (1958/63) will be the possibility to practice the new references in particularly favorable conditions. The safety of a landscape and a challenging topography, which are wished unalterable, a kind of guarantor of an universal harmony, was setting and place for a designed building in contemplation / understanding of nature, not being, however, mimetic or passive, but generous identification and active interpretation. See yourself as the rocks before thoroughly conditioned the shape, gain cut and special sculptural force against the white plaster and become into spectacular fireworks´ project." - Alexandre Alves Costa, architect

When Álvaro Siza finished what is known as the Boa Nova Tea House in the early 1960s, it marked the beginning of his career. Set in a challenging topography, the building stands as a symbol of architecture’s identification with, and active interpretation of, the landscape. The composition of its low, volumetric expressiveness and surrounding rocks demands a respectful attentiveness, which until recently had been steadily deteriorating. Under the supervision of Siza, a full restoration of the building’s public spaces and a deeper intervention in its service areas has been undertaken. Beautifully photographed, with plans and original sketches by the architect.
