The project comes from a diagnosis of the potentials for housing in the borders of the “morro da Conceição”, located in the city center of Rio de Janeiro. Nowadays, this region has many spaces that are not well used, like parking areas, and historical constructions in bad conditions. So, the proposal is to create new buildings in these sites and revitalize the zone, making a combination between housing and public equipment (association and multi-use spaces), two important needs of the area. In order to that, the work intent to develop typologies to make this new intervention in a historical place and also creating a integrated system of public equipments.
