Mima Housing

MIMA is a multidisciplinary office that focuses on the conception and construction of architectural and design products.

MIMA houses can be built with several different methods like wood or concrete and each house is designed from scratch, adapting to the different clients and lands.

MIMA intends to be more than an architecture office, and rather epitomize a brand new philosophy of simplification and seduction that will gradually apply to the most varied scales of architecture.

Prior to becoming a product, each MIMA project is conceived as part of a complex system, optimized and tested to the smallest detail. Each new product embodies a complex treatise, which implies the translation of architectural rules into software, ultimately allowing for any user to formulate his/her own personal project within the universe of rules that has been pre-established by the architect. Besides allowing for a customized conception, this custom software automatically transmits all the information to the factory, allowing for an immediate cost estimation and subsequent prosecution of the construction.

MIMA’s aim is to bring forward the development of a “Sensible Architecture”. Sensible relates to reality, to observation, to simplification, and mainly, to results. MIMA does not only conceive architecture, but rather delivers architecture, seeking to carry forward the Modernist dream of prefabrication, of integrated design, of architectural democratization. A “Sensible Architecture” can also be sensitive, by means of applying traditional materials with a thorough sensorial care, stimulating the way people identify and engage with space, images and forms.
