The DM2 Housing in Portugal is Compact

The DM2 housing units located in Porto, Portugal, are intended for younger people or students in the area. While the units are quite small at 28-105 square meters, the design is still ideal for those who are strapped for cash.

On the outside of the building, the walls are covered in a dichromatic pattered texture and color, giving the housing that slightly different look. While most of the housing is made from concrete, this dichromatic addition really helps to give the place more appeal. Having an all-concrete abode can be quite cold and uninviting, so these small additions really help to give the place a few comforts.

Another interesting addition is the parking/yard area that has concrete throughout, but grass that also grows through specific sections. As such the space is used for dual purposes.
