Chamber of sound, activated by the tide to listen to the waves of the sea. The circular labyrinth imagined by the world famous architect, Pancho Guedes, in what became is last work.

It was initially planned as a temporary intervention in 2010 within the Allgarve contemporary art program. Pedro Ressano Garcia the commissioner at the time was hired in 2015 to upgrade the whole intervention from temporary to permanent.

“The construction of this chamber of sound to listen to the sea reminds us that listenning depends on learning to listen in itself, because misunderstandings, overlays, fictions, seem to be increased. Listenning demands practice and training.” José Tolentino Mendonça

The building makes use of low tech construction systems with local materials, with tech and contemporary materials spread world wide. Global and local, tradition and innovation found a good balance in this project.

To achieve reduction of CO2 emissions, local knowledge and high tech solutions succeed in lowering environmental impact and energy efficiency by a symbiotic relationship between the architecture and the surrounding ecosystem. Whitewhased walls, exposed beams, recycled materials, cross ventilation, water treatment system, use of solar energy and local solutions are combined in a consistently committed sustainable design.

Cutting edge technologies that provide accurate information regarding thermal and lighting comfort influence the use of materials and design strategies in search of optimal behavior. Shading, thermal, lighting are among the topics that reduce the energy consumption.

The concept seeks to “make the place visible”, inviting the demanding, curious and educated user to “live” every corner of the territory, allowing him to discover the unknown, enjoy the seasons, get to know the local culture and nature that can be discovered and appreciated in its genuine aspects; In a period dominated by fast food and mass tourism, the aim is to implement a counter-culture, that is, a culture of the slow as opposed to the fast and the valorization of the individual and his privacy in opposition to the masses.

The values ​​of this Slow Tourism travel through carefully designed places, providing a deep contact with the timeless character of the landscape where there is still a balance between the presence of man and nature.

“The project develops a hypothesis based upon the creation of urban centres
designed according to previous existing examples. The central argument is that
energy efficiency and sustainability have been tested for centuries in traditional
dwellings still existing in the region.
Based on these premises the urban layout and architectural typologies merge
new technologies and secular knowledge.”
