Text description provided by the architects. The building is located in the Port of Roquetas de Mar, in Almería, Spain. The projects objectives were to integrate the building into its surroundings, creating a new area that responds to a landscape dominated by different levels and materials. It is a landscape of great value with the Mediterranean as the background.

The Port’s concrete was used as the main material to contrast with the Board’s wood, establishing the main line of work. A fragmented building responds to the different uses required. Between the administration and reception areas is a covered area that leads to the the end of the quay.

 A band of white concrete wraps around the exterior and unifies the different areas, creating a focal point for the port.
