It is a sustainable structure that honours and integrates itself into the land and soil. With Bioclimatic integration of the architecture into its surroundings, creating a green-roof. Green-roofing can help regulate the temperature of the building, and reduce the amount of stormwater runoff.

Instead of discarding the land and soil, we have found a way to incorporate it into the building. Vale da Lama combines the most innovative techniques with age-old traditions. Building facing the south, taking advantage of as much sun exposure and view of the landscape, use of advanced coverage for shading during the summer, but which allows energy gains during the winter.
