The project design comprises a petrol station presented as a small-sized compact module equipped with all the necessary features. The closed customer service and shop section develops horizontally into a canopy, thus creating a prism-shaped body made of grooved concrete. Its North-West face is excavated to make it more inviting for customers to fill up under the shade of the structure.

The plot located on a rocky headland next to the old pier, was certainly complicated due to its small size and irregular shape. This difficulty was even increased by the significant slope of the base on which the chapel was supposed to be constructed.

The semi-desert landscape around it and the proximity of the sea, an imposing presence that frames the building establishing a strong relationship between both, an impressive view over La Gomera island, are the starting points of the concept of the building.

Canary Islands House
The renovated single-family house is situated in the historic city centre of La Laguna, declared by UNESCO in 1999 the cultural heritage of humanity. The building is situated between party walls and is designed as a single-family house, with two floors above ground level. Its composition is simple and represents a worthy exponent of traditional domestic urban architecture of the eighteenth century in the Canary Islands.

Puzzle Piece Canary Islands
At the patio of the Infant School ´La Herradura´ a new organic landscape grows against the rigid tipology of the original building, opposed and superimposed. The bright colours and soft shadows gently fill the newly covered patio, turning it into a living landscape. In a similar intent to Villa Mairea the supports vanish and the satinated treatment of the enclosing walls captures the luminous reflections, helping to fragment an impressionist reality formed by spots of colours.
