|:||This project was born in order to build housing and multi-services spaces, in a common road-side area in Vale de Cambra, Portugal. The client required that the construction should be fast and cost effective, which prompted us to use the Gomos System. Additional images are available The ground floor is composed by prefabricated slabs and structural panels in the whole exterior perimeter. Considering the building`s location, in a road-side area where everything changes too fast, the multi-services space is conceived in a very flexible way: the internal compartmentalization is made with removable panels with inner rails for the distribution of water and electricity systems. The first floor is all composed with the Gomos System. Considering the maximum permitted area by law was quite short, we managed to find space to separate the housing units. Concepted and licensed as a collective housing building, we gained with this split the main advantages of single houses: clearly individualized entrances and a complete acoustic separation between the different units.|
