Tiago Ferreira joins us for the third time in the Architect-US Portfolio Challenge, he was a part of the Architect-US Job+J1 Visa Program in the past, and this time around he submitted a project called House in a House. Last time he submitted the project called Falling Light, which aimed to provide different sectioned off areas of a building that each provide space for a different activity. His new project aims to envelope a house within a house, to be more specific a green house, that is able to use solar energy through the Solar Shovels included. By having an open stairwell that allows for air flow as well, the design provides a new way of living within nature.

He has a passion for design and rendering of spaces that create a new experience for the user and takes them out of their comfort zone to make them think about their surroundings and how they interact with it.
Tiago Ferreira used AutoCAD, SketchUp and Rhino to create this beautiful artwork.
