Pemba House

PEMBA 2013  –  The project addresses the reorganization and restructuring of a building near the center of Pemba, Mozambique. The main body and the volumes added over time are related through the grafting of a ring of wooden brise-soleil and covers that defines paths and performs the necessary protection from sunlight, rain and intrusion. The ground floor consists of offices on the road, while the first floor is dedicated to residences. These are organized around a small courtyard offered for common use. Each unit has large open spaces oriented towards the panoramic view of the bay and harbor.
