From the architect. A work that transforms Amareleja landscape, where holm oaks ando live trees had yield edits place to an immense sheet of photo voltaic panels. It is materialize transformation of the lanscape (landscape gets transformed); the virgin and scattered yields its place to artificial and dense, earning constructed urban characteristics.

This vision exudes for the drawing in spiring it, where the traditional trace merges with the contemporary. The concept is a white sloping roof building that hides behind a wall. The passage ends in some large carefully oriented windows pans.
