This is a project in the middle of a coastal forest located 1km from the Atlantic Ocean. The project, called Sociedad de Mar, seeks to install an alternative model of tourism from the immediate periphery of one of the most exclusive seaside resorts: Jose Ignacio, Uruguay.

A set of houses that share a swimming pool and a multipurpose hall are distributed regularly within a plot of 60 meters on the side, reproducing the way in which the trees that surround them are installed. A number of materials, spatial, and organizational variables eventually outline a new species that seeks to live with all those who cohabit the forest. Each of the buildings is positioned on the ground without modifying the conditions of the unused soil. For this purpose we arrange two ways to enter the units.

In the upper area of ​​the site, every house is preceded by a private courtyard, while the lower part is entered through an elevated courtyard. The formal alternation offered by both courtyards allows testing a dialogue with existing trees while characterizing transverse circulations. Conversely, three clearings parallel to the glen intersect the project diagonally offering an intermediate level between the forest and the homes. The use of reinforced concrete made on site extends to all buildings through a horizontal dimension designed for a group of five workers to handle at a time. The resulting texture patterns the perforations specific to each of the houses.
