ENZA RESIDENCE

Given its privileged location on the bay of Luanda, Enza Residence building offers amazing views to all apartments over the sea, the bay and the city. The name “Enza”, means “World” in Kimbundu, and it is transported to the architecture concept since the building projects itself over the sea and the horizon.
The volume is created as an exception moment, with oblique facades and angles that are intended to lead the eye to the sea. Commercial areas and a restaurants take place in the ground floor. In the upper floors there are twenty typologies of three bedrooms and three typologies of four bedrooms.

All facades are ripped by angles of light in different directions giving place to large balconies, which extend the interior space to the outdoor.  The apartments are defined by the fluidity between spaces as well as the strong presence of the ocean and natural light. A selective choice of materials and constructive systems ensures comfort and serenity in the apartments.

Besides a residential building, Enza Residence constitutes a new benchmark in the city of Luanda.
