Abrantes Housing

This was a project for five housing buildings, organized in a single row. Located in a sloped place of Abrantes’ southern hillside, the project was especially difficult because it had to deal with the existing neighborhood system of views and with pre-existing structural elements of a former project. The north elevation of the built group presents itself with two storeys, where the formal access is done. The south elevation has five storeys and contains the accessible entries and the parking and green areas. This facade, facing the river, contains all the common spaces of the apartments and supports continuous balconies. The land area is 2730 square meters and the total construction area is 5432 square meters. Three of the buildings are already in place and inhabited. Only now, the other two are going to be built.
