Located in a neighborhood characterized by illegal buildings, a house is defined with its outer oblique borders, thus designing the different spans of the two-storey dwelling with accessible roof, so as to contemplate the view.
A minimalist white volume defines the openings of the dwelling on both floors, and where in one corner of the house a glazing is directed towards a privileged view.
The floors of the Odivelas House are evidenced in the different elevations through plans that demarcate the two levels of the housing, the communication between floors is made through a black chromatic ladder, integrated in the social zone of housing, marking an imposing presence in the space. Various shadows draws the obliquity of the different quadrants of the white chromatic volume.
