“Da minha aldeia” is a project located in Paradinha, a small village in Portugal, in a steep place facing a river. It is about creating a community of neighbors, a collective residential building, with different common and private uses.


We change the concept of collectivity, making each user enjoy their own home, accessing it through an exterior corridor, which is accessed through a building of common uses. The houses have great flexibility, and can be configured differently for different type of families. Inside, laminated plasterboard is used (PLADUR company is specialized in it).


We use the panels, in a new way, configuring the space through a series of flexible shelves that allow its inhabitants to design the space in their own way. The homes are distributed around a central service space that has the bathroom, kitchen and storage spaces.
