Text description provided by the architects. The restaurant and bakery is located in a farm composed of different arborean species of a certain age. Its main purpose was for the visitors to enjoy nature’s changeable and irreverent environment during their stay. For this reason, the area’s history and the existing species’ location was respected and a building was drawn so that it coexists and dialogs with its surroundings, allowing for the present and human experience’s concept and language evolution to be revealed.
Based upon the environment and landscape components of the area, the construction seems simple yet aims to stress out a significant amount of elements that make up for its sustainability. The building is divided into two boxes: one for restaurant support and the other for food preparation and holds the dining room. Both volumes are connected by a cover piece, the result being an external area partially covered, bringing into life the volumetric unit between both boxes and allowing for light, water and nature to invade this space built in an abundant and permissive fashion.
