Rua Da Maiata House


A house in apparent chaos.

A small plot of land for a house that needs to be large in a complex and messy surrounding, where proximity and orientation of the neighboring construction potentiate voyeurism.

The house is organized around two major voids, whose function is create a new landscape, a kind of filter over the surrounding to give more privacy to the rooms.

A monolithic house of white brick, with wrinkled edges, crossed by several gaps strategically positioned to control the stringing on the visual surrounding, involves the home and introduces a new way of living and perceiving the site, taking advantage of their weaknesses as a opportunity to build a new way of living.
