The project aimed to enhance the unobstructed view of the Atlantic Ocean, increasing the permeability between the interior and exterior, through wide windows with full opening.

The intensive use of the wood in the interior floors and ceilings and in the exterior walls and floors was based on a nautical inspiration provided by the location.

The division between the living room and the kitchen was realized with shutters, allowing a total opening between the two spaces, making them when desired an open space. The separation between the room and the balcony was made through wide tri-rail windows and a loose fireplace was introduced at the border of the two spaces, which can rotate in all directions, being an additional element of convergence between the interior and exterior.
