Text description provided by the architects. The proposed intervention in Alphaville Country Farm sets a respectful relationship with many original features of the property and gives a unique character to the place. It seeks to insert the new buildings, minimizing interventions in topography and preserving as much existing vegetation. The club is located on the existing plateau, which was formerly the barn. Maintaining the existing lines of trees, we create through this landscape a natural barrier against heat from the east and west. Sports courts and the soccer field are at the same elevation as the place of deployment of the flag of the club and are part of the topography through gentle slopes and small landfills.

The functional organization of the pavilion is made linearly, with parking, service areas, pedestrian and vehicle access at one end which are connected with the rest of the club through circulations. Large spans define the character of some areas such as the Reception, Games Room, Spa, Fitness. In some places, like in the locker room and sauna, the high ceiling allows the creation of raised floors for water tanks and equipment.

These spaces are also connected to the terrace of the pools through circulation. Creating an open space allows views of forest and permanent preservation areas from different parts of the club. A wooden deck, connected to the terrace and the pool terrace, is adjusted to the topography at different levels, covering several "Jabuticabeiras" already in place. This creates an open space, at the ideal shade for parents to relax while their children play in the adjacent playground.

An outdoor courtyard creates a pleasant atmosphere for sports and makes the transition to the Gourmet area, more secluded, to extend through a wooden deck near the lake.

Metal structure was the choice for the club pavilion, because it can cover large spans with structural parts of small dimensions, allowing, without further interference, the use of glass walls. The roof is made of thermo-acoustic metal tiles, clad in wooden slats on the bottom and wooden rulers at the top. This cladding extends to the inner walls of the spaces with higher ceilings, now with internal glass enclosures, allowing transparency and formal unity between the different elements.
