In 2010, Levisky Arquitetos participated in the National Public Architecture Competition for New Sustainable Housing Types for Low-Income Families, promoted by CDHU (São Paulo State Housing and Urban Development Company).

With concepts balancing the sustainability tripod – social, environmental, and economic -, our design prerogative of applying the Universal Design guidelines and flexibility in construction, Levisky Arquitetos proposed new typologies for one-floor houses and single-family homes, capable of reproducing the typical situations of urban space.

A housing model designed to meet the needs of families throughout their lives, such as the increase in family members, aging, and mobility reduction. In addition to stimulating social bonding, comfort, quality of life, and diversity of use, it has a low impact on the environment and the family budget.

The two- and three-bedroom typologies propose the expansion of façade surfaces, sunlight and natural ventilation, integration between open and closed spaces, sunlight control, water reuse system, heating using solar panels, exposed electrical pipes, and individualized water and gas meters. Environments are also accessible and fully adaptable
