The Mangrove

The project is inspired by the unique and beautiful ecosystem of mangroves. The design features a striking network of roots and branches that make up the façade, structure and foundation of the building. It is constructed using sustainable materials such as Ipe wood, as it is a durable and eco-friendly material that enhances the natural aesthetic of the building. Thanks to its intricate ramification, it allows natural lighting and ventilation to penetrate, resembling a lush forest.
