Design selected for the biannual exhibition at FAU UFRJ

(we are)

SOMOS is a students’ accommodation in the heart of Rio.

This design came as a response to the lack of affordable and comfortable rooms for students and lecturers in the city.
Primarily, the main concern of the project was to create spaces to enhance socialisation and human connections. To do so, the building has several common spaces and footbridges to show the buildings vitality.

Regarding the buildings position in the plot, the facades should aligned with existing neighbours. Additionally, there are two accesses to the centre of the site to create a public enclosed space.
