Used Materials and Techniques Superblocks, teak wood, palm roof, wastewater treatment plant.
Project developed on the theme of a Greek atmosphere with its white walls and greek blue decoration.
The large roofs made of teak trunks and natural palms provide great natural ventilation and coolness.
The site is surrounded by dense vegetation and a creek that accentuates the impression of immersion in the heart of the tropical forest.
The large overhanging roofs provide shade and freshness to the buildings, but also allow large covered terraces which is were a lot of detail has been put at: a nice relaxing fresh water pool and a lot of room for sitting, relaxing and sharing as a group and of course close contact with nature which is a key element in this project.
Everything has been thought to offer a quiet and relaxing vacation experience in the middle of the jungle. Comfort and privacy are respected despite the density of construction on site.
