PORTICO by Vanguard Properties
An impressive architectural feature whose origins have been lost in time, porticos mark an area by a temple or building with a column-supported roof. Generally open on three sides, they were heavily stylised by the Greeks and Romans, for whom they had great symbolic value.
During the Renaissance, the Venetian architect Andrea Palladio revitalised porticos for the modern period and everyday life via his famous villas, whose façades not only incorporated Vitruvian harmony but also much of this element’s primordial significance.
This magazine is a metaphor of the “Palladian” portico, transposed to this century and our own lives. From this Portico, we perceive what’s inside, inviting us to discover the cosmopolitan world of Vanguard Properties. The doors of this Portico are always open, offering everyone a warm welcome. This is a place to share, to make a connection, and to find new perspectives on our surroundings.

Portico" magazine exceeds expectations, once again.
Vanguard Properties recently launched the second issue of the magazine "Portico". After the excellent reception that had the first issue, and because at Vanguard there is nothing we like more than a good challenge, we decided that this second edition should continue to surprise. And considering the comments and compliments made on this issue, the goal was far exceeded.
It should be noted that the three covers (Celeste’s Gardens) specially created by renowned Portuguese artist Joana Vasconcelos, are an excellent testimony of the relationship that should exist between companies and entities from different sectors, promoting art, culture and, of course, quality.
