A structural system of columns, beams and slabs, made of reinforced concrete, places the “piano nobile” ten meters above sea level.

In this way, aside from reaching the best ocean views, it warrants a continuous and dynamic balance of the dune. This situation allows the interaction of the wind with the sandbars.

On the support formed by the structure and service base, two compact volumes are assembled articulated by a series of expansions that function as arrivals from the dune. The envelopment is solved in Steel Frame coated in boards of lapacho in the outside and pine painted of white in the interior.
