AE Office (Luanda, Angola_2014-...)


The project reconverts a band typology residential building in a service building. The proposal involves the demolition of the interior elements, adapting the spaces to the type of work to be performed; the addition of new structures that allow a functions hierarchy together with the increase number of workstations; the addition of a metal grid that grants privacy, security and sunlight control. Not only construction and demolition materialize this proposal. The void is also of vital importance ensuring the access to the building and, more importantly, enabling socialization and decompression moments to all space users, increasing their sense of comfort.
