It is the home of Delvina Borges Ramos, a 74-year-old domestic worker, from Vila Matilde, in Sao Paulo, Brazil. From the outside it looks quite normal, but it is enough to set foot inside to discover that it is “the ideal house” (that is how they cataloged it).

It is modern, spacious, comfortable and tasteful. It didn’t require too much money, and best of all, it was built in no time.

Delvina lived there more than 25 years ago. However, it was not until 2013 that everything took a radical turn. A storm brought down the roof, so the woman decided to do a remodel with the money she had saved. And so, he asked his son, Marcelo Borges, for help to hire the Terra e Tuma architecture studio.

They specifically asked that they stick to a low budget. And most importantly, they take a short time to finish.
