Concept development & master planning

Project Description

Petersham Group, together with Portuguese associate Eurofun Lda, worked to develop a concept and master plan for the leisure component of this major new shopping development to be developed in Portugal by Belgian company, Wilhelm & Co.

The site comprises hills, woodlands and a lake of outstanding natural beauty. It is planned to carefully develop the site to allow public access and sustainable recreation and to showcase and interpret the natural environment by means of tree top walks, walking and cycle paths and use of the lake for non-motor water sports.

The master plan also includes a 4* hotel and conference centre, sustainable lodge-style accommodation and cafes and restaurants, including a number set on stilts out across the water. A huge range of active and extreme sport and recreation opportunities will be programmed into the scheme and an events programme which will be a key part of the project centring around an amphitheatre set on the lake shore and fronting a floating stage. Whilst the plan is currently on hold as a result of the economic situation in Portugal, Wilhelm & Co. as landowners intend to proceed when the economy recovers.
