Situated in the small village of Chabouco in Alfambras, on the road to the beach of Vale Figueira near to Aljezur, the complex consists of eight apartments and a restaurant.
The complex is constructed on different levels following the contour of the land. Built in a fan style the entrances taper in width to the rear terraces to enable full benefit from the hours of sunshine and full enjoyment of outdoor living.
Chabouco is in the Natural Park on the West Algarve coast and the complex has been constructed in an eco-friendly manner. The buildings have been built with CEBs (compact earth blocks), one of the oldest and natural forms of building. Clay soil is moulded in brick form with a lime mix, compressed, then dried in the sun for a few days for stabilization. The blocks are then left for a few weeks in the open air to increase resistance. Once built CEB walls increase resistance through the years.
The buildings have a high thermal mass thus storing solar energy for night use.
This recyclable energy is economically efficient and contributes to a healthier environment. The thermal mass also enables the structure to 'breathe' which balances internal humidity - absorbing and releasing according to conditions.
'Breathing' of the walls is ideal in a Southern European climate as it allows passive bioclimatic solutions, especially ventilation. Thermal mass is advantageous during winter as walls absorb solar energy during the day and provides internal warmth at night. In the summer the temperature of the night refresh the walls and cool the interior during the day, avoiding the use of air-conditioning with its economic and environmental costs.
