With the orchard structure, strips of land protected by walls of plants, these spaces are generated from partial coverings, between the high walls that protect them, with a route that descends, where views and enjoyment of the night sky become central. This project is for a night of rest, not for a busy day, but rather a way of life. To find oneself alone, facing the night and the emptiness, finding refuge between the warm walls where the opaque and the glass reflections mix in a play of light and water, to feel aspects of nature considered forgotten.
