Alameda dos Ipês Housing Development in Santa Caterina
Location: Itajaí, Santa Caterina, Brasil, South America
Design: OOIIO Architecture + Terra + Abramar
OOIIO has been commissioned to design 430 social housing units within a new sustainable neighborhood in Itajai, Brazil, called Alameda dos Ipês.
The project, currently under construction, has meant long months of hard work and has been done in close collaboration with other local architectural firm and a Brazilian developer, being OOIIO the foreign participant in the project team, which meant for OOIIO a great learning and an excellent opportunity for cultural exchange and understanding of the functioning of the construction market of Latin America´s giant.
Alameda dos Ipês is conceived to meet all requirements of the Brazilian social housing program “Minha Casa, Minha Vida”, intended to make the necessary standards to design houses for medium-low social clases.
The building designed by OOIIO for this district aims to save and maximize resources in our favor, despite the many economic and legal restrictions that the project has, in order to get aff ordable quality architecture, understanding at all times the technical reality of the local construction market, to achieve a realistic project with much higher quality standards than similar projects build in the area.
Besides designing buildings and apartments OOIIO has also been commissioned to provide the planning of multiple architectural elements, low cost, to get Alameda dos Ipês well known as the real first development of “Social Urbanism” in Brazil.
This project goes beyond the traditional design of social housing, just taking care of the buildings, here also the target is to get the public spaces specially treated to promote inter-relations of individuals, encouraging the sports practice, life in contact with nature, the interaction of different social groups and ages and respect for the immediate environment.
Alameda dos Ipês therefore is a project, already under construction, which is becoming real the dream of our client: to get actually Social Urbanism.
