JLA House, Luanda, Angola

Private single family house in Angola

In an urban ghetto, defending past values, the challenge was to recover old memories in a new object, identifying live proposals in simple volumes.
As a game of blocks and openings, the idea was to have a social ground floor and two private levels on top, ending in a panoramic balcony in the roof.

The resolution of the layout resides in simple geometries using primary modern colors, for the prolongation of outdoors inside, as in Mediterranean patio houses.
Sophisticated material choices combine simple architectural volumes, in a contrasting environment.
