The site, on the edge of the town, has been sculpted by the city and the landscape, and the project, interprets this conditions, showing the essential features that bring us closer to understanding it.


The building becomes a transition element. Aware of the re-composition of the small scale context, and at the same time, establishing a dialogue with the horizon and the landscape monumentality, through the tower volume. A timeless monolith suspended over the plateau.

The embodiment of the building, through stone, is understood as an intensification of the site nature, which allows composing a sensorial invocation of the landscape. However, the presence of difference, in which the project expressed their radically contemporary condition.

    The articulation of the volumes look very nice but the rounded windows don not make any sense.

      Why don’t make sense? Here new architecture explores context, improves it and introduces some new visual experience. In that way, rounded windows makes sense, like subtle visual excess.

    The correct location of this building is Roa de Duero.
    I think the rounded and random windows show the contemporary of the building, which it is placed in a small and historical environment.
