History

The Companhia Insular de Moinhos Mill was built in 1929/30 on the block between Rua Visconde do Anadia, Largo do Pelourinho and Travessa da Malta. From the beginning, the building stood out from the other neighboring buildings and from the city. Its volumetry and height, as well as the large windows occupying the front facade, have always made it unique. In the early 90's of the XX century, with the transfer of the company to the Industrial Free Trade Zone, the old manufacturing facilities in the city center were deactivated, maintaining, however, its imposing and distinctive look. Now is the time to make it reborn in the XXI century and open its doors to new residents.

Bringing an iconic space into the 21st century

The Insular quarter resides in the Madeirans’ collective memory, defining a space that doesn’t go unnoticed to those who visit Funchal. The Savoy Residence Insular will embody the history of the ancient buildings that once stood there, paying them a well-deserved tribute and bring them into the present day as a renewed centrality. This is its town. This is its history and its future.

The architectural heritage returns to the city

The first buildings to come to life are the ones that show up in the foreground along Avenida do Mar, next to the archaeological remains of the Fort of São Filipe. This series of houses will be restored according to the original design, ensuring that the architectural heritage of Funchal is kept alive. In the recovered houses there will be space for housing and commerce, thus recovering the reality of other eras.

From the mills houses are born

The most iconic building on the quarter, the former Insular mill company, is the centrepiece of the project. There are apartments of different sizes, with spacious areas and balconies with sea views that let the sunlight in. This is where you'll find the concierge, available 24 hours a day, and an entrance hall that is calm and spacious, with the old chimney in the centre, which has long since been part of the city's imaginary and thus remains a sculptural element of this building.

From glass, lightness emerges

Next to the central building, the old building was given a makeover - facing Rua do Anadia - keeping the volumetric, but creating an ode to the industrial revolution, where glass, concrete and metallic structures create a flowy arrangement and open up the project to the city's Old Town. The glass building stands in contrast to the reconstructed historical mansion, lending even more eminence to it. The sophisticated and modern apartments breathe lightness.

Industry as inspiration

The final building in the project is the smallest, but no less interesting. Even because it features another innovative offer: the lofts. You can reach this space using the entrance at Travessa da Malta or the existing and maintained walkway between this passage and the building facing Rua do Anadia. The space gains modernity and spacious lofts with double-height ceilings where natural light prevails, make use of the modern day industrial inspiration.

Innovation

Enter in a development that is more than just a residential building. Here you will find innovative layouts tailored to your desires. From duplex and triplex for families, through large lofts full of natural light, to apartments with outdoor areas or those with a private pool, we wish you find your dream home.
