The project combines the functional requests of the brief with the characteristics of the site, proposing an installation designed by the force of gravity: a landscape of ropes wraps the visitor and generates a light and sensual structure, while a series of circular wooden seats to which ropes are connected invites visitors to sit and socialize within their patios. Even the internal environment, defined by the ropes themselves, is a suggestive meeting space. The result is a dual and liquid environment designed to relax and admire the pinewood; an ephemeral place where light dances with shadows, seats hug trees, and the wind caresses ropes... three wooden volumes and countless ropes generate a multitude of spaces with zero environmental impact (and very low cost).
