It is a vital place connecting with nature, human interaction and sustainable development. The concrete and lawn give the terrace a clean-cut parallel and bring up the concept of separation from CONVOLO. The surround landscape and material perpendicular structure which reflected the gathering in CONVOLO.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Imagine yourself swimming in the infinity pool and drinking in the natural forest and cerulean ocean. While enjoying the tea at outdoor sofa, you are sway with ferns planted behind the seats while the breeze blowing. The berms with plants have turned into natural slopes then transformed to incredible terrace field. The terrace field with fern follows the hillside morphology in a tiered configuration while the CONVOLO and communal facilities are built on it.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Once completed, the CONVOLO is expected to be a spot where guests can gather together enjoying wonderful break time and a panoramic view of the ocean. The lush grasses, dense shrubs, and colorful flower, planted to withstand the windy environment, sprawl the scent of freedom. This place is like an oasis in the desert. There is birdsong and sunshine spreading the sense of peace. The most remarkable point about CONVOLO is that it harmonizes the shape and lines of nature with the space.
