Beach resort in Tróia, Grandola
Considering the significance of everything that involves Troia – the fragile environmental balance, the ocean, the Serra da Arrábida -, the project designs four gardens that constitute the endemic landscape of this extensive territory marked by a mixture of geographies: the Atlantic and the Mediterranean . The gardens are delimited by circular, modular buildings, accommodating the various residential units that face the extension of the landscape, which remains protected and untouched.
In the center of the complex, the common areas of the Balnear Resort are installed: atriums, concert halls, bars and restaurants, social and health areas, sports spaces and swimming pools.
The buildings are built on stilts and constructed of assembled wood.
The project includes the regeneration of the extensive area of seafront dunes, and the maintenance of the territory’s own habitats and microclimate.
