Conceptually, this project aims to recreate the idea of being under a thin sheet of fabric, protected from the sun and the wind. A five-house complex, with a swimming pool at its center, that shares a common roof, which shades most of the exterior gardens and other social areas. Developed to perform like an oasis, it transmits a sensation of freshness and tranquility, while the shade protection reveals its true importance, contrasting with the private beach at the edge of the plot, simultaneously achieving the status of a desert campsite and a beach house, but most of all, a gathering place.
