Coordenation Jorge Guimarães

The By Nature is a small wellness center in Alcabideche. It was a project done in a very short time… The choice of wood decking for pavement and wall as well as black Valchromat paneling for doors and cabinets gives a warm light to the interiors. The water fountain filters the noises and introduces the clients to the treatments. It has 3 rooms and an entrance area.
