The goal of our project is to reveal the meaning of travel as a way of knowing oneself. As Albert Camus wrote: "Travel as the greatest and most serious science helps us to rediscover ourselves" - this idea becomes possible through the understanding of "different". Thus, the already familiar can reveal itself if you look at it through a distance.
In order to experience the uniqueness of the landscape of the Morro di Porco lighthouse, our project tries to establish its close interaction with the surrounding area through two basic mechanisms: a walking route and contemplation.
Our project consists in creating lines in the landscape, routes along which various objects appear overlooking the lighthouse: an observation deck, a platform for a bathroom, a restaurant, a bar terrace in front of the lighthouse, as well as a number of buildings for living and contemplating nature. On the other hand, our goal is to minimize the traces of construction due to minimal intervention that preserves the landscape of the area. Thus, both the fragmented route line, adapted to the topography and different geographic characteristics, and the simple geometric designs of the small parts of the complex, distributed along its entire length, maintain a natural disposition, in contrast to its organic geometry.
As for the buildings, we offer the fragility and lightness of wood against the background of the immense landscape. We combine compactness and totality of buildings with their concentrated location, and natural organicity with simple geometric shapes.
Parts of the house are used as places to relax. Small structures range from individual houses to a maximum of two properties per block, which gives residents the maximum level of privacy. The houses got sea views, south-east and south-west.
