Seemingly paradoxical, but restrictive context and strictly defined project tasks facilitate the work of an architect, by limiting his options, and leaving him quite a real, although not big, platform for manoeuvre.


In terms of following this logic, the two family houses which are the topic here are completely different: the lack of contextual conditioning makes them almost freestyle exercises, challenging meditations about the theme of out-of-city – in other words, suburban – family housing.
