The housing complex of Santa Maria has a total of 7 private holiday homes. Situated on the slopes of the Santa Maria peninsula with a view to Inhaca Island and Maputo Bay, each home enjoys great privacy and unobstructed views. The houses were designed individually in order to meet the requirements of each client and tailored to the different slopes and views.

The main house featured is single-family dwelling owned by one of the partners of the complex. It is located on a hilly terrain, enjoying views of almost 360 degrees; Maputo to the West, Inhaca to the north, and south to the open sea. Given the profile of the land, the house unfolds across multiple platforms following the slope as closely as possible. As it is a holiday home and because the climate permits, we focused on the privacy of the suites, separating them from the living areas with independent exterior accesses.

The kitchen and social areas were given a privileged position on the highest part of the plot so as to enable a wider angle of view over the surroundings.

The social area is open space and connected to the outside where there are several decks at different levels that define the several spaces and functions such as outdoor dining and seating. An infinity pool and a chill out deck were also created facing the sunset.
