Location: Jardins do Lago

The inspiration for this house came from the study of the geometry of the chinese puzzle called Tangram, where a set of geometric forms are subtracted from a square and then rearranged to form pictoric figures. The challenge of the Tangram is to form the figures using all the pieces of the original square.

The front and back facades of the house were designed as a three dimension arrangement of the geometric sections of a Tangram. The spaces formed in-between the pieces were used as to house the stairs, the skylights and the house installations.
