The architecture studio Fala Atelier has built six micro apartments around a communal garden in Porto, Portugal.
The Portuguese studio renovated a pair of granite buildings to create a row of five 30-square-metre houses next to a slightly larger single-family home, all of which share similar interior design, materials and finishes.

Each house has a living space on the ground floor lit by a pair of shuttered windows, one of which acts as a door, with a staircase leading to a sleeping area that is placed above a bathroom.

“This project explains our architectural ambition: we want to create independently of the limits imposed by the original building and the starting conditions” explains the studio.
