Housing Cell


(São Paulo, Brazil)

Submitted to a competition which required the use of concrete as the main material, so a concrete module was designed in a way which depending on how it is connected to other modules would form different configurations of buildings.

Concrete is a durable material, and as the pieces would be self portant, and after use, the building could be disassembled and assembled in another way at another location avoiding the waste of time and energy. Taking advantage of material characteristics such as strength and durability, the building was designed to be an apart hotel in the countryside of Sao Paulo.
