Immersed on the edge of the Nichupte Lagoon, the site forms a small peninsula where many features of the territory collide. The strategic location of the site, located within the slender strip of land that divides the sea from the lagoon, offers a great opportunity to explore the different facets of the natural landscape like gardens, water bodies and mangroves. The strategic positioning of the mangrove areas help to create a transition between the waterfront and the complex, preventing erosion and helping to preserve both the fauna and the flora of the region. Acknowledging the role of the natural environment, the project takes it as a driver and creates its identity around it. Thus, artificial and natural elements are weaved together strengthening the assets of one another.
