The Hacienda's concept is to have different pavilions linked by an open arcade; they are grouped in Master suites, children's and guests bedrooms, common areas, including living, dinning, libraries, gym, pools, terraces, BBQ, movie theater and service areas. Each pavilion was designed to have its own identity; circulation between them is through courtyards, terraces, and views to the landscape gardens. The program is completed by sports area, including a football court, a tennis court, a squash court and a labyrinth.

It is a one storie building that takes advantage of the property's extension; the roof is used as a terrace and as a walkway for views.

The interior circulations become exterior pads to walk along the property though the variety of landscape, having a strong relation with this beautiful site.

A pavilion was recently built as an extension to the Hacienda. It was constructed on the side of a lake between a large crop of citrus trees. The great artist Sergio Fingermann framed the entrance to the plaza with one of his designs made out of authentic portuguese stone.

The pavilion is shaped by two volumetrical triangular walls that face each other, creating the access and main corridor between the two spaces. The first wall flows into the body of water forming at the end a large terrace covered with a pergola. It also creates an access to the water through a staircase located at one of its ends.

The second triangle which is located over the grounds creates a volume in which the dining area, kitchen, bathroom and storage areas can be found; all of these are covered by a green roof and on its side there is also another terrace that overlooks the lake.
