关于 TEMPO: exclusive community in the international jet set destination of Trancoso
ABOUT TEMPO: Located in the international jet-setting paradise of Trancoso in Bahia, TEMPO is a community of houses designed by Triptyque, French-Brazilian award winning architecture office known for mastering the art of integration between architecture and its surrounds. Right in the famous "Quadrado" (Square), this exclusive community is composed of nine lots and is at less than a 5 minutes walk from charming restaurants, small shops and the breathtaking beach of Trancoso. Its nine homes will vary from 115 to 155 sqm. featuring a social area, open kitchen, central deck, ofuro, and nature-integrated bathrooms. Each lot will have its own coconut tree incorporated to the house structure. The owners will be able to contemplate the growth of their trees besides contributing with the local vegetation preservation. TEMPO exists in sinergy with the surrounding environment, its local culture and population in a mutual respectful relationship. During the whole construction process, the community will count on a project called "Growing with TEMPO", where multidisciplinary apprentices will be allocated in order to learn a new craft bringing development to the region. TEMPO is all about great architecture and sustainable development in one of the most trendy destinies of the Brazilian coast. // ABOUT TRANCOSO: Former fishing village turned trendy getaway, Trancoso is famous for its white, semi-deserted beaches with cristal clear water and rich marine fauna, protected by reefs and with natural pools during low tide. With a semi-tropical climate and an average temperature of 24º C, its natural wonders epitomize an alluring invitation to sip coconut juice and caipirinhas while the sunlight glitzes above. Trancoso is located 23 km from Porto Seguro, in the Discovery Coast of southern Bahia. Considered the starting point of Brazilian history and culture, it is where Portuguese explorer Pedro Alvares Cabral disembarked more than five centuries ago, and was declared World Natural Heritage by UNESCO in 1999. Beaches like Espelho, Coqueiro, Pedra Grande and Nativos are enjoyed by a mixture of natives, Brazil's free-spirited elite from the southeast and winter birds from Europe and North America, some of which have settled down and set up business in the place - not to mention celebrity regulars like Naomi Campbell and Gisele Bündchen. Quadrado, the main square, is the dominant attraction after the sea, sun and sand triptych - an open field with uneven cobblestones bordered by charming candy-coloured low-rise wooden houses and, at the far end, a small chalk-white church, the second oldest in Brazil. Behind it, a dramatic view overlooking the pristine Atlantic Ocean. At night, dainty lanterns sparkle from the mango and almond trees and art galleries stay open well past midnight while glasses clink and local music (think samba, bossa nova and forró) echoes in the outdoor tables of hip bars and restaurants. Glamorous beach clubs make the perfect setting to watch the sunrise's mesmerizing pallette. Foodwise, an outstanding quality of organic ingredients and large variety of seafood makes Trancoso home to a distinguished culinary scene. Ceviche, grilled octopus, juicy shrimps, chorizo, moqueca, pasta and an endless variety of national drink cachaca are only a few of the delicacies readily available. The hotel industry has been boosting the real estate value of the village for the past years, with luxurious enterprises such as Uxua Casa Hotel & Spa and its pool lined with thousands of green aventurine quartz, opened by former creative director of Diesel, Wilbert Das. Bahia's capital city Salvador has the nearest airport, but the private Terravista Airport and Helipad between Trancoso and Arraial D'Ajuda allows planes and helicopters to whisk jetsetters in. Popular attractions around Trancoso include Terravista Golf Club, deemed the best in Brazil, whale watching around the shoreline and kayaking down the Trancoso River, as well as dancing capoeira, a form of martial art, and playing chilled evening football on the grass. Some beaches boast 5-feet waves and strong winds, making for a great surfing venue.
