From the architect. The project arises from the manipulation of a continuous surface which by means of two operations, cutting and folding, resolve the entire programme. In this way it appears as if it were an object which does not emerge from the ground, it poses on it. Without jumps or breaks in its continuity, it wraps playfully round the topography being an external face and internally, a floor, wall, ceiling, framework and roof.

The internal programme resolves itself with diaphanous and interconnected spaces, changing its height in sequence in order to resolve the different scales. It is an object susceptible to being expanded or reduced without marring the whole, since the result is an open process
