The design of the Espirito Santo Residence is derived from the twin imperatives of topography and usage. It is situated on a corner plot with views of the town's principal valley, with a drop of 10 meters from one side of the plot to the other.
The first question to be tackled was that of creating an artificial terrain that would allow for easy transit around the external areas and their use for day-to-day activities. The landscaping was determined by the creation of these areas.
