The owner of this magnificent home, located on the golf course, have given us the mandate to build them a terrace overlooking the pool and Ipe wooden wall.
Ipe is an exotic wood present exclusively in South America and Central America, it is also called green ebony. This is one of the exotic wood more stable and dense in the world with a very fine grain that is highly resistant to moisture and external aggressions (fungi, termites ...). This wood can be installed with hidden fasteners without risk of deformation in time. Ipe is prized for making wooden terraces, but it is also used for the construction of infrastructure in challenging environments such as ports and areas with high hydrometric and climatic variations.
We have met the challenges of building a solid wall that can support the strong winds and a terrace with no visible screws.
