Coo Lodge has an unbeatable view near the volcanoes and the beach. The beach has a beautiful sand and stones. The geometries around the place can show the sea and the beach in a great view. With a clean place, the architect can recover the beach that had been covered with large weeds for a long time.

The architect uses some materials to design the interior, like old zinc plates. The plates are recycled from the old constructions. The building has its own history and becomes a part of it. The oxide and ground have the same color, creating the architecture look like a rock, a piece of land.
