With a floor plan of less than 40m2, the three bedrooms develop on four superposed floors.

The section in steps generates a generous full height living space in the small volume, in direct communication with all the floors. Towards the street, the pre-existing historical facade is left as found; a reminder of Lisbon’s fast changing city center.

Low-cost construction techniques and simple materials are specifically chosen to build an affordable dwelling. Locally sourced tiles and stones are used for the furniture, walls and floors. The rough cement blocks used for the shell meet custom made simple metal work.
