Cliff House

This project, created on the icelandic coasts of Finland, is a tribute for the people who deserve their own space in this world. Unique, irrepicable. A brutalist monument, that provides not only shelter, but a private dome for solitude and meditation. A place for you to focus on yourself.

The concrete material embraces the long, monumental slabs that run throughout the boulders of the coast, worn out from the waves that slowly molds its own history on the landscape. In here, architecture and nature aren’t set apart: they invite each other to come in, and feel themselves at home.

The Boomerang Pavillion

Up in the hills of Brumadinho, Minas Gerais, the Boomerang Pavillion is a space to represent and complement art, through the use of nature, architecture, and emptiness.

Empty space is a crucial factor when creating an environment dedicated to artistic appreciation. Is through it that you actually hand out the role of protagonist to the art represented there, telling people: “This space was created for me. I’m the main attraction here.” Architecture acts as an extension of it, as a stage for your art to step up and steal the show.

The roof is accessible, giving the user the possibility to climb up and appreciate the beautiful scenery that happens around it. Art inside and outside. Perfect balance.

The Boomerang pavilion is a work that cultivates silence. It’s not a place where you can take 60 people and have a party, or a rock concert. It’s a place for contemplation, which makes you rethink the values of everything you’ve believed so far.

Among the mountains of Brumadinho, this is where you rediscover your link with the world. What do you want to be? What do you want to convey? What energy do you want around you? The architecture of this project comes to make you reflect. Looking back, and imagining what lies ahead.

As an artistic exhibition space, its interior is empty, a blank canvas for commissioned artists to exhibit their art in a place designed for this. Neutral, but instigating.

Café Azimute

Brazilian architecture seamlessly integrated with the surroundings and a welcoming environment. That’s Café Azimute!

I present to you the project of this coffee shop, located in Fortaleza, Brazil. It was designed to bring together various architectural elements in which I believe, becoming a truly unique space in Fortaleza.

The tables communicate with the outside and invite people to explore the interior, where they are greeted by double-height ceilings and a diverse layout to cater to various preferences. The combination of hydraulic tiles, bricks, wicker, lighting, vegetation, and art makes Café Azimute the next landmark in the city’s coffee scene.

Reviving the typical interaction with the sidewalk, a characteristic of Ceará, was a significant inspiration in this project.

Café Azimute welcomes everyone with a cozy atmosphere, and upon entering, visitors are captivated by the richness of details constructed with authentic Brazilian architectural materials. The flexibility of the layout makes the space adaptable to various audiences.

Portugal Olive Guest House

Portugal Olive Guest House for the Verde family

The main concept is to create a unity through achieving harmony with the context and engaging visitors in the production process of olive oil, its history and tradition.

This has been accomplished through gathering volumes around a courtyard, with the same morphology and roof typologies as surrounding buildings and expressing the production process in the facade of the production area.

In this way, visitors participating in a workshop, can also engage with the production process.

The entrance to the guest houses are ordered in a way to have access from the courtyard. While the meditation area is more secluded from the courtyard and connected to the semi – private area, like the terraces of the guest houses.

Respecting the topography and the trees on the site have been resulted in a promenade that depicts the circulation and interralationships of spaces and their hierarchy. Besides, saved green on site are also cutting direct sunlight and vegetation on the roof of the guest houes provides insulation, reduces stormwater runoff and improve air quality.

Regarding the materials lime rendered rammed earth walls, cork and oak wood has been used. Cork is used as isolation material for thermal and coustic comfort. It provides, like rammed earth, a cool environment during summer months and it’s recyclable. Besides, Portugal is world’s largest producer.

Oak wood is used for roof constructions, floors, window frames and veins. Oak columns and beams are repeatable. So features such as modularity, cost – effectiveness, climate comfort and easiness to fix and change, make those materials a perfectly adaptable choice for use.


It’s my second project made in Sketchup + Vray. I used to work with Blender + Cycles to make visualizations but it seems that V-ray is better with lightning.
