Favela House, 2009

Belo Horizonte, Brazil; Residential

In the informal housing of Belo Horizonte, a designed favela house is intentional with its economy of material and energy. By compartmentalizing its uses into private and public, left and right of the circulation staircase respectively, the house minimizes unusable spaces like corridor and bedroom, and optimizes living spaces like kitchen and living room.
