Inspired by Natured

Symbol of beauty, glory, immortality and wisdom, the peacock is the great inspiration for this project, the colorful tail of the male and the eye-shaped drawings connect with the vital and eternal cycle of nature and combine several characteristics, such as the variety of colors and the captivating charm of its shape. The project consists of a main entrance of hand-forged aluminum with patina finish for vehicle access and two doors for pedestrian access. The artistic style embodied in the pedestrian gate with bamboo shoots connects with the natural elements present.
