All services and hotel facilities are aggregated into a single building, freeing the land outside the bungalows.

Influenced by the vernacular and Arabic architecture, is created a monolithic volume with small openings to the outside ,which together with cork coating , fully recyclable , ensures thermal protection of the building .

Built around a large courtyard ,the layout is designed so as to take advantage of cross- winds and air circulation , thus reducing power consumption to the minimum necessary .

In order to ensure the lowest possible occupation and overview of the Alentejo Landscape, outdoor pool and bar are located on the roof of the building .

All 56 bungalows are suites .

Their deployment, scattered among the olive trees around the property is defined by the structure of internal thoroughfares . These paths are read as a series of abstract volumes and surfaces, plastered and whitewashed.
