It’s not everyday that you see a residence which has been built with the express purpose of serving multiple generations over a very long period of time. Usually architects have to worry about their current clients without necessarily taking into consideration the next generations that will live in the structure that they built. The Luna de Sang estate is quite special in this sense. This is more than just a residence. It’s an ecosystem, a multi-generation project designed to stand the test of time. It’s a project completed by CHROFI in 2018. This used to be a dairy farm and from its concrete and stone wall ruins a modern pavilion has emerged, complete with a gorgeous swimming pool, surrounded by a pocket of subtropical rainforest.
The pavilion is actually the latest addition. The property also includes two working sheds, a guest house and a general manager’s residence. As a whole, this is a multi-generation project meant to thrive and to stand the test of time, not just with its architecture but also the rainforest which will reach maturity in 300 years or so. The pavilion’s design is modern but also timeless, featuring stone walls on the outside and wood paneling and polished concrete floors on the inside. The materials are locally-sources and recycled.
