Santarem Housing

Study on accessible housing and CLT
Santarem Housing

This was an urban study for a new neighborhood on the outskirts of Santarem. The project comprised a deep research on housing types and on accessibility. The land has 15250 square meters and we were proposing 30 units including detached houses, twin houses, and row houses. The total proposed construction area was 7500 square meters. We developed five different architectural types to respond to the orientation, in order to get the best natural light in every home. The urban concept is very simple: an organization around a closed square where children can play and families can enjoy the common green spaces, offering an urban sense of space in a suburban area.
