S+A is the author of the architectural project of this Resort that holds a total area of 136 hectares by this region’s Pond – one of the most beautiful lands in the Portuguese coast. The Resort comprises 630 tourist units surrounded by extensive green areas and an eighteen-hole golf course. S+A team adopted a low-density urbanization as the base concept. The construction evolves along the natural stratification of the topography, an added value when it is considered the views that the residential units enjoy over the golf course and the sea as the background scene. The Evolutee Hotel sits on the hilltop, the apartments meander around the hills and the villas benefit from the quiet outline of the golf course. One of the essences in the development of this Project was the importance given to elements which were able to establish a great relation with the nature – from the choice of material to cladding such as wood and stone. Also, it was emphasised the integration of vernacular/ traditional architectural elements and details from that particular region and therefore the final result is a homogeneous and balanced materialization between the various built elements.
