The buildings in the living area, support, and accommodation are projects that are part of a master plan developed for the Juquehy Praia Hotel, located in an area by the sea, on the beach of Juquehy. The Living Building was the first of them in 2012, and the circumstances surrounding the project practically gave birth to its architectural solution and its structural wooden system. It was a renovation in one of the buildings of the Juquehy Praia Hotel and very little was known about its original concrete structure. The program suggests an event room integrated with a living area, which serve, among other functions, as a foyer for event participants. For the Life Building, it was understood that a prefabricated structure should be adopted and assembled on site. The big issue that the architectural project exposed was the gaps between the proposed pillars and the swings next to the facades being relatively large to the wooden beams traditionally used in the usual constructions.
