PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Following the narrative thread of a "path through the woods', the center develops internally, following the rhythm of pergola-covered passageways, terraces, small patios and big courtyards. To reduce the environmental impact, the building is subdivided into low blocks descending in accordance with the naturally sloping land. Like a monastery, the complex is subdivided into public areas and private areas.
