At a walkable distance from the main square of Paredes de Coura, a terrain is available for housing. The area was studied for new affordable housing. In a first phase, three models were developed: A) terraced houses/row housing, B) small apartment buildings and C) one large apartment block. Each model showed how housing programmes can be integrated into the existing terraced landscape (socalcos, granite, grass).
In a second phase, based on mix principles from the models A and B, one single plan is now being further elaborated. The model will provide space for 50 housing units in various types (T1, T2, T3). In addition, a central square (largo) will be included, which will introduce a meaningful meeting place for its wide surroundings.
Urban Dynamics works now on the public space design.
