This building is located in one of the last non-developed slopes of Maputo with an unobstructed view of the bay.

The largest challenge was the inclined gradient of the plot and as a result the complex retention solutions. There are two accesses, a vehicle access on the Marginal and a Pedestrian one at the top on the Av. Bernabé Thawé.

The complex has 52 apartments divided into 3 separate buildings – Casa Chefe and Maresias 1 and 2. The space between these blocks allows the entry of light in the different apartments. In order to minimize the impact of the 7-storey building on the Marginal, every floor retreats incrementally, creating interesting and dynamic volumes.  There is a common garage below ground level that has direct access to all apartments.

A distinguishing feature compared to other housing developments in Maputo, is the great typological diversity that ranges from T0 to T5s.

Several common, outdoor spaces were designed including a pool, barbecue area and service and laundry areas.
