ETIAL was a residential project to be built in Angola. Although a team of consultants was gathered, only the sketch design phase was developed. This was supposed to be a new neighborhood with 344 housing units and 16 single family houses. The project included a commercial and leisure area with shopping center, auditorium, hotel, a sports pavilion, and ground parking. As a general rule, the architecture was developed in order to create buffer intermediate spaces separating an exterior skin from the recessed envelope of the buildings. The urban concept was based on the idea of a central public park that complemented the small green areas that worked as semi-private spaces. This project was co-authored with Goncalo Valente – Architect.
