Three valleys and three hills stand out in an esplanade of light undulations. The character of this place allows the definition of large plots and panoramic views of the internal and external landscapes. The privileged location of the plot allows, at the same time, to be in the countryside, in contact with nature, and to enjoy the infrastructure of pre-existing services. Such peculiar characteristics call for careful handling.


The project is developed through large residential areas that surround an open field, providing large views and greater spatial quality due to the organicity of the urban design. The main feature of the central boulevard is the connection of the blocks to the BR 356 and defines, at first glance, the differentiated character and the landscape quality of the enterprise.


The entrance path is configured, along the valleys, in a route punctuated by commercial areas interspersed with green. These form a network of meeting points and centralities, and can accommodate a variety of services aimed at residents: oenological brotherhood, gourmet club, gyms, veterinary care services, among others.


From there, central beds develop into large wooded areas and spaces for fruition. The roads become linear parks, welcoming residents and visitors. The road layout values the particularities of the terrain, following the Topography, expanding the views, conducting rainwater and enhancing efficiency of hydraulic networks.

This same layout reveals circularities, triangles, bifurcations, ramifications, defining spaces that refer to mining villages. Its internal structure is of a circular design, inside which larger lots can be distributed, generating a desirable variation of products, without harming the quality standard of the enterprise.

Inside the blocks, the road system is slightly different from that found in the central area of the development. Its road structure is finished in cul-de-sacs open to the landscape, allowing connection to the adjacent forest. The lots are protected from the main circulation structure, located parallel to the contour lines, accessed by roads that branch off into trails, alleys, bike paths, woods and squares. Elements such as sabodans can contribute to the filtration of rainwater before it is released into streams, controlling silting and increasing the aquifer collection on the land.

The institutional areas are located in the plot to the northwest, opening up autonomously to the city and, at the same time, forming a relationship that favors the independence and uniqueness of residential spaces. The project offers the land a careful arrangement, bringing together its qualities and specificities. The occupation enhances the points of view, transforming the occupation into an amphitheater for enjoying nature.
