Proposal: Our proposal for the Alcaniça Housing Competition in Almada tries do make the most out of a difficult urban condition. The entrance from the more private side of the street with high windows at ground floor level guarantees privacy, while the functional organization in duplex apartments with double height living rooms, guarantee better light exposure and allow wider spaces in minimum areas.
