CBS is located at Vale dos Barris. It was designed to be an ecological and living block. In a microclimate that ranges from the dry heat to damp cold, the application of cork is a good way of thermally isolating the shelter and also provide acoustic insulation for study/sleep. The dynamic facade gives visual interaction when in living-studying mode, in rest-sleep mode it closes to provide privacy for its occupant.
