The project used the rules and the basic geometric forms of the puzzle named “Tangram” to distribute the different items of the house for two families with chinese descent.  Repetitions of the same geometric forms were used to accomodate additional items of the program in the backyard of the house. The internal space is composed by two independent modules that can be inhabited by two families of three people. The terrace that connect them also cover a varanda that is a common social space for the two families.
