Bachelor's Degree final project at the Federal University of Pernambuco (UFPE). The design is a hostel in the neighborhood of Santo Antônio - center of Recife - that makes partial use of an existing garage building called Piratininga.
The hostel was designed using the concepts of symbiosis and parasitism. In biology, symbiosis means the association of two or more different species which have a mutually beneficial relationship. In architecture, the symbiosis can be seen as a way to create new spaces in neglected buildings or areas of the city, benefiting both parts.
