From the architect. In Mediterranean peri-urban littoral, the pollution of maritime aerosol affects the survival and the growth of pines and other plants.

In this way, create an extension forest, like the existent one is not viable!

The canopy is the architectural element with more references to a tree.

The Pillars

One of the most characteristic signs of the littoral pine is its light inclination in direction of the dominant wind. This wind is the cause of the impossibility to replant pines. This verticality contrasts with the horizon line of the sea.

The Cover

To create a shade by means of the pegola who remembers) the shade of the pinegrove.

Undulation, movement, the canopy is made by a hexagonal grid of fibreglass (Material resistant to the marine salt) that moves lightly with hard wind. Mounted like a "mecano", very fast, the time is spend in design.
