“... the front door continues to appeal to our sense of arrival. Call it the ceremony of coming home”
The program is a hybrid of gastronomy, yoga, and botany in a single space where visitors can put all their senses into pampering themselves. Its main function, of a commercial nature, becomes a homelike experience for the visitor, thanks to materials of earthy tones, specially chosen to envelop the buyer in an atmosphere where nature and craftsmanship fuse.
The rustic character of the indoor elements and the recycled materials used in the staircase strike a contrast with the technological facade, which is executed with precision to let the sun and the wind in, making artificial air conditioning unnecessary. The result is a contemporary construction that evokes architecture of the past.
