introduction

Casas Melhoradas is a residential development project that aims to improve housing conditions for low-income groups in Maputo, the capital of Mozambique. The aim of the project is to both raise the quality of housing and lower housing prices while developing a housing model that utilises space and infrastructure more effectively.
