26 Housing Units in Borneo Dock

Mateo Arquitectura as Architects

The project is a low solid with emergences and holes. The roof, that is in terms of surface the most important facade of the building, shows a landscape between domestic and abstract. From it, the arising volums introduce a small and rural scale to the whole. Lightness and weight, wood and brick (with its specific construction and compositional systems) form a complementary world, like a mandala, trying to respond both to the aquatic and gaseous character of the site as weel as to the need of stability, anchoring and protection a house demands.
