Situated in a gentle landscape, the estate would be given an organic quality so as to incorporate itself as much as possible into the natural world.
These undulating lines would lead residents to common facilities, sports fields, and residential units. The entrance to the building would be marked by common social areas converging on a shared meeting and leisure space, the Casa Grande, divided into five interconnected bodies.
Distributed along a central axis, three typologies of smaller residential houses would take advantage of three different ways of dwelling. The first type, Casa Patio, presents a central patio, conceived to enhance light and interior reflection, but also as the element that organizes circulation and connects and divides the various areas of the house. The second type, Casa Eira, located inside the estate, stands out for its intense interior-exterior relation established by the extension of the roof and the exterior platform that continues the interior space. Finally, Casa Lago is developed along the lake at the center of the property. The integration of the built volumes with the surrounding flora was a determinant design element, giving rise to a simple mass featuring expressive lines.
