Project Area: 5,575 sqm
Construction Budget: 3,755,000 Euros

The plot is located in a very difficult landscape and it covers the The Plaza España, on the edge of the Barranco del Infierno (ravin) and the buildings between the Church and the ravin. This project creates new spaces and buildings for the municipality under the ground of Plaza España. There are 2 essential elements: on one side there is the Sacred Museum of Adeje and on the other side the rehabilitation and widening of the Plaza España.

Elevation 01

The building which is a museum is designed as a half-buried building with an upper space used as cafeteria and underground floors used as spaces for exhibitions. The Plaza España is going to be twice and a half wider than the original plaza and creates a permanent stage and spaces for the municipality.

    You really make it seem so easy together with your presentation however I find this matter to be really something that I believe I would never understand. It kind of feels too complex and extremely extensive for me. I am taking a look forward in your next put up, I will attempt to get the cling of it!
