429 Foz Housing is a residential building with 4 apartments spread over 5 floors.
Located in Oporto ́s Foz do Douro area it has East / West orientation and is inserted in an urban area in consolidation next to the Atlantic Ocean.


The accesses to the building are made from the East by the Gondarém street where also the bedrooms are and the backyard is oriented to the West where the social areas are located.


The backyard that relates to the neighboring buildings has partial sea views.
The design of the balconies directs the visual framing to the Atlantic Ocean, also allowing the large opening windows to extend the social areas from the interior to the exterior.
Gondarém street contains mainly residential buildings with continuous façades and leafy trees.
We ́ve adjusted our project volumetry to that delineated by the contiguous buildings.


Regarding the design language we explored a visual of fine contours, being the main material the dark colored concrete with a texture that extends to the wood elements complemented with vegetation.
