to retire

is a refuge in the Alentejo landscape.

the project is composed of two extensionsto existing bodies.

the program is a mere opportunityto promote more frank

rellations with the landscape.

the refuge wants to be one with the landscape, taking it

for itself, in perpetual continuity the limit of space is always

where the eye reaches.the expression is the result of this

relationship and the will to confer a figurative aspect to the

anonymous language of the existing fabrics.

the new objects are like characters that have belatedly arrived

to a story already with a beginning but with no end in sight.
