This residential project inserted in the neighbourhood of Itaim Bibi, south of São Paulo, explored its best qualities to provide a respectful relationship with the surroundings. The basement proportion is designed as a volume that dialogues with the street scale. The distance between the building and the street allows a better landscape perception, including the open front garden that welcomes inhabitants and visitors.

The housing units main feature is the integration of internal areas where the absence of partitions provide a width of space, leaving only the confinement to privacy areas as bathroom and toilet. The relationship between the internal and the external is also due to the large frame that provides a wide visual range, making it possible to enjoy the view of the immediate and distant urban landscape.
