PZ House

Ended Construction

The PZ house, located in Vilankulo, Moçambique was created with organic and flowing forms, inspired by the typical Greek, Santorini houses by the sea.

The 1,200 square meter plot resembles a rectangle and has a flat area near the beach and a steady slope in the East-West direction.

The spaces flow into each other in a naturally and organically, with pauses for sights and other points of interest. The house and external spaces follow the natural slope of the terrain resulting in the formation of steps, plateaus, benches and the pool itself. It was as if the external areas were carved out of the sand.

The pavement is in cement and the walls in white limestone leaving a simple and comfortable canvas to decorate, enjoy and inhabit.
