Text description provided by the architects. The site for the Nautical Sports Services Building of Portonovo is located at the end of the marina breakwater. (Sanxenxo, Pontevedra) The project aims at expanding and improving facilities for the Nautical Sports Services of the port. This will take the demolition of part of the existing building and relocation of the different uses inside. The idea cosists in wrapping the original building with a new facade of black-colored phenolic panels, giving a modern view of the Club and guaranteeing waterproofing and insulation in this exposed area.

An additional building is attached along its southern front with an independent structure, offering new spaces for the users. The height above grade, will be matched to the height of the current roof. The resulting volumetry are developed in the east-west longitudinal axis allowing two large facades that open onto the beach Portonovo (north) and to the port (south).
