Farfetch will open a new office in Matosinhos through 2025. The tech company led by José Neves will be part of the new Fuse Valley Center, in partnership with real estate and construction group Castro Group, according to the announcement on Thursday.
The technology company bought, in April 2019, for 15 million euros, a Land of about 70 thousand square meters in Matosinhos To be the technology and process innovation center of the company. The project has finished development and will have a total area of 140,000 square meters: in addition to Farfetch, office and service buildings and a hotel will be built. The Castro Group will promote the buildings.
The new Farfetch space will bring together workers from the luxury fashion platform with offices in the Leonesa Business Center and in Boavista in the municipality of Porto.
The future technology valley will be designed by the office of Danish architect Bjarke Ingels. Also known as BIG, Ingels is considered one of the most innovative architects in the world: he was responsible for the Masterplanet project, to redesign the planet and halt climate change.
The Dane was selected from among the proposals submitted by six national and international architectural offices.
“This project with BIG will revolutionize the current concepts of workspaces, which are futuristic in nature, oriented towards sustainability and luxury. It will be a space not only for Farfetch, but also for the whole community,” says Jose Neves in a statement.
