Text description provided by the architects. The project undertakes a complete renovation of the rear image of the building, with the construction of 30 new rooms and the remodeling of the facades. The new volumes are placed taking advantage of the original terraced section in order to produce vertical planes, whose slight displacement creates small outdoor spaces for the rooms.

The facade solution is based on the extensive use of vertical slats of great depth, responding both to the need to control the incidence of

The lot is large, which allowed the dispersion of the program and enabled us to design a a single leveled building, thus reducing costs. The project has a bar as axis and a satellite; the 21 meter long bar distributes the program in a linear way, so that all spaces open onto a large porch facing the

The concrete porch shelters the itineraries of students, parents and teachers and provides a shaded plinth for protection and leasure. The different volumes emerge out of this plinth, their shapes cut out in the sky like the pine tree tops.

In a "residual" land, without facing the sea and near the untouchable boundary of the mangrove, three volumes contain in this hotel its own aquatic landscape. Three long vegetable roofs shelter the rooms without touching each other. In this way, the 'palapa' retains its clear, simple construction. This archaic logic, learned from the Mayan house, allows the walls to be independent from their structural work. The room is sheltered between

The house follows the same philosophy as other projects of ours, which privilege inhabiting a structure rather than structuring a dwelling; the project is a system in equilibrium. The hierarchy of the house is conveyed in its materiality and thickness, which, in its path through the space and the structure, solves all the necessary elements with a single formal /

With a regular and orthogonal organization this neighborhood is characterized by the adaptation of its urban fabric to some pre-existing elements, such as the Church, which served as a reference to its main axes.

The location, on the edge of Parque Florestal de Monsanto, gives it a very unique and calm atmosphere typical of the villages that inspired its design. It is a low income neighborhood of townhouses composed of areas with buildings with two small floors that where the general morphological characteristics have been maintained.
