“It is not the right angle that attracts me, nor the straight line, hard and inflexible, created by man. What attracts me is the free and sensual curve — the curve that I find in the mountains of my country, in the sinuous course of its rivers, in the body of the beloved woman. Of curves is made the entire universe, Einstein`s curved universe “. Oscar Niemeyer
Our proposal seeks to embrace the sensorial geometries of the coastline and the mountain rendering its natural fluidity into a “static” movement of our building. The latter stands as a sculpture framed carefully in motion , juxtaposed to the greater perspective of the Mediterranean landscape.
The building was designed from the inside out in order to orchestrate the best views the cascading plot has to offer. The project looks to project the gently undulating rhythms of the coastal landscape within its structure, creating organic spaces that expand and enhance our perceptions of our surroundings.
Responding directly to the surrounding coastline, we create a simple yet rich design language that encompasses breathtaking views that will evolve and change with the season set amidst the sound of the shimmering movement of the sea as they envelope the architecture and its elegantly arranged sequence of layers and surfaces.
