Exclusiveness, safety and uniqueness are the guiding points of the Vale dos Cristais Enterprise.
Exclusiveness renders itself in the beauty of the region. The condominium is inserted in the landscape in a way to take part on it, merging with the natural environment and making it richer, while also interpreting it. The constructions are surrounded by green areas, in a soft coexistence with the natural grounds.
Safety can be guaranteed by a well-planned and comprehensible road system, control of the doorway and the service areas.
Architecture is here to grant uniqueness to this endeavor. The place hints at its own personality, in a singularity. It is a building for the grounds, instead of the grounds for the building.
Natural materials, such as wood, rocks and bricks, generate new environments, new paradigms, an unconventional way of “living the mountain”. The buildings at Vale dos Cristais create their own personality, differentiating them from others. They join together beauty, tranquility, privacy, safety, comfort and, above all, freedom.
