About the project
Welcome to Vale De Moses. You are immersed in a hillside oasis. Surrounded by pine trees and mountainous scenery, nothing but nature and fresh air around you. It is time to relax. It is time to take care of your body and mind. Stretch out, breathe in and close your eyes. The yoga cliff house is here to assist you in your meditation.
Nestled upon an outlook above the main complex the yoga house has a perfect vantage point of the mountains. The roof opens to the sky flooding the yoga space with light. Screens and curtains disappear and the space becomes one with nature. The yoga house feels more like a ruin in the landscape, a series of walls, gardens and openings that capture and embrace the landscape on which it sits.
This building is respectful of its location. A white rendered solid base and an arched terracotta show loyalty to the local architecture. It feels like it has been here for centuries, and will be here for centuries onward.
The yoga studio experience is something very special. You have come a long way to get here, from all corners of the globe, to simply roll out a mat and enjoy some very peaceful yoga. But the building enhances this experience. The solid walls feel protective and indestructible, however they allow the building to open up. Large apertures frame a number of special experiences.
The studio space takes full advantage of the view to the mountains, whilst the building also creates internal views to lush courtyard gardens that are open to the sky.
The roof frames views of the canopy of pine trees and gives visitors glimpses of the sky.
This building is here to excite and enhance your yoga experience and leave you refreshed, but longing to return.
