Eligibility All

Faced with the proliferation of beach houses at luxury, closed and exclusive bathing resorts, many clients have opted for quieter places; not necessarily far from the beach, but where they can enjoy greater freedom and more space without all the complex ties formed by the rules that oblige them to adhere to the internal regulations of such condominiums. It is within the context of this return to nature that small lots have begun to proliferate (between 2,500 and 5,000 square meters), in which people have started to establish small accommodation for themselves and their closest relatives, creating a new and socially interesting phenomenon: the country-beach house, which is accommodation that functions during both summer and winter and which does not centralize its activities around a single nucleus, but instead disperses its facilities throughout the area of a comfortable lot, thereby providing a certain degree of independence in the form of zones and sub-zones, creating in this way distinct spaces, which may be differentiated by the type of light, vegetation (or the absence of the same), or simply through differences in colors, texture or materials.
The clients are a couple aged between forty and forty-five, without children and who like to invite their friends over to stay with them for the weekend, which means that they would like to include a number of rooms which might be spatially related, but without sacrificing their independence.
