The project integrates architecture with existing landscape, relating to topography, existing stones, native species, minimizing earthmoving, resulting in a group of pavillions interpersed by the luxuriant natural Atlantic forest landscape.
Natural raw materials like stone and wood were used extensively.Low reflective colors like moss green were deployed in masonry parts. Dark english green and dark grey were used in apparent metallic structure pieces. Wooden planks previously used as basis for heavy machinery that worked in highways constructions, already texturized by time and heavy duty use, were acquired by the architect, recycled and gave the construction a unique texture and rustic character. Rare formats like the 30x30cm wooden planks compose many parts of the structure. Resultant parts of the wood pieces obtained from cleaning and recycling, provided slats used for masonry walls claddings, furniture, entrance gates and finishings throughout the house.
