It is complemented by a large perimeter terrace, such as sundecks, with slopes and interior and exterior bodies of water, which always open to the beautiful natural landscape. They are conjugated in oneself. The multi-perforated panels provide protection and privacy, without ever leaving the delight of the natural environment, conforming to the distinctive architectural elements of the project.

A combination of solid and translucent elements within a circular platform provides the palafito with 360 ° views, which makes it adaptable to any orientation. The zenithal light through the dome and the perimeter lighting allows control of the temperature and interior lighting and the enjoyment of the night landscape.

The set of 10 units is achieved based on piers and corridors on an outdated circular platform with a direct link from the beach, allowing the creation of different perspectives with the same language. A microenvironmental and social environment is created at the center of the complex, forming a large natural pool at the foot of a multi-use platform for yoga, fire pit, reading, or another point of contemplation.

The project emphasizes at all times the framing of the natural environment and its self-sustaining response to it. Prioritize views and spatial quality with iconic, eco-friendly architecture.
