Aloha Surf Bar By HMA

Brutalist architecture doesn’t lend itself to beachy, surf vibes — but every once in a while, the utilitarian concrete design takes a step out of its traditional, cliched environments. The Aloha Surf Bar by Portugal’s Hugo Monte Arquitecto is one such structure, utilizing some of the staple design elements of the Brutalist movement, while opting for a more “laid back” location.

Just outside of Vila do Conde, Portugal, lies a vast expanse of ocean bounded by golden, sand-strewn beaches and foliage; it’s here that the Aloha Surf Bar was erected — a minimalist concrete structure with a glazed, raw exterior that’s a stark contrast to the surrounding area. The Surf Bar overlooks the Atlantic Ocean, with an interior bar area and an expansive wooden deck that allows for direct access to the beachhead. Sharp, angular lines work hand in hand with the building’s rounded edges, providing denizens of the local surf and SUP school with an intriguing space to capture Europe’s version of the Aloha way of life.
