Our main objective was to create a building that responds to the specific location and functionality.  The site is at the surroundings of a beach but far away from the shore coast. So we want to bring the beach experience to the house.

Looking around, an existent beach tent is the perfect solution for this project, since it’s a weightless plane parallel to a surface that projects a shadow creating a habitable space beneath it.

The program is divided into two parts: private life and social living. The first one is located at ground level with a high functionality and few vertical perforations making it a low lighted object. It works as a solid platform that allows the social living to be above it as an open space with no internal divisions, with a panoramic view under a weightless plane.
