Savills was responsible for placing RUTZ Cork & Gifts, a concept store with eco-vegan DNA in all its products, in Príncipe Real. Known for its commitment to sustainability and innovation, the Portuguese brand has arrived in a neighbourhood that conveys historic charm combined with modern elegance, making it the perfect setting for RUTZ Cork & Gifts’ new location.
Number 24 of Rua da Escola Politécnica has a commercial area of approximately 200 sq. m on the ground floor; it is a privileged location with great visibility.
This roomy and attractive space is housed in an old building, and its colours and textures make this shop a welcoming place with an image of tripartite coexistence. Located in one of the city’s most iconic areas, this space is aimed at a public that embraces causes, be they social, ethical, cultural, or environmental.
Hugo Baptista, Co-founder and Marketing, RUTZ Cork & Gifts says: “We've tried to bring concepts to Príncipe Real that combine modernity and tradition, from Portuguese charisma to international. We feel that this area of the capital is a place of great cultural openness that coexists with these concepts and appreciates them”.
Maria Luísa Branco, Retail Associate, Savills Portugal, says: “Savills Portugal is concerned with finding brands and concepts that add value to properties and the areas in which they are located. On the other hand, it also supports brands with growing environmental and social awareness, focusing on the commercialisation of increasingly attractive and sustainable national products with cultural, social and environmental concerns, favouring the use of recyclable materials and reducing the ecological footprint. RUTZ Corks & Gifts is an example of the new retail trends, combined with Portuguese traditions”.
