Inspiration in the local landscape
The steep mountain diving into the ocean. It wasn’t hard. All we had to do was respect the topography. No monolithic blocks hiding the landscape. The sinuous lines of rooftops follow the contour lines. Small volumes are almost randomly distributed, much like the rocks. The views from Barra pier and Pepê beach are present in all the openings. The natural vegetation is recomposed on terraces leaning over the ocean. The emphasis of the project was architectural mimicry.
