Located on the Algarve coast, the present rural tourism unit is implanted in a property with several cork oaks (trees protected by the Portuguese law) that constituted a condition that the architecture and landscape architecture projects had to respect. These trees, together with the topographical condition, were the main motes of the design of the exterior spaces.
By giving priority to the pedestrian circulation and to intimate and diversified environments, the proposal of landscape architecture conciliated the different built volumes in a segregated circulation network that ensured the privacy of the units.
In terms of the proposed vegetation, the primacy was given to native species and the proposal included a set of lawns nearby the rooms. The irrigation system uses only dripline , reducing the overall water consumption and reducing discomfort during the irrigation periods.
