The home is located within the Nova Oeiras neighborhood, which practices the “garden city” concept. The houses here come with adequately sized plots of land that can be used for gardening.
This is no typical home, a bit unbalanced in terms of its overall structural design, but there is a porch and balcony.
It is actually a merging of two buildings with the extension attached to the rear of the original building.
To match the main structure, the same hexagonal tile pattern was used on the walls of the secondary structure.
The same pattern can be seen on the windows’ sliding grates.
Although the extension was planned to stand as a separate structure, we wanted it to connect seamlessly with the main house.
The ground floor boasts of a spacious living room with an excellent view of the garden. It has a kitchen area separated from the main living space via large glass sliding doors.
Access to natural light is maximized by having one large glass screen by the staircase.
This is a two-bedroom, one-bath home with a walk-in closet.
There are three windows on the rear of the home and they let natural light in and offer a view of the backyard as well.
