It is a construction that protects, that wrap, but allowing  the user direct relationship with the outside without isolation of a privileged environment.

The building is treated as a longitudinal street that runs through the entire building and their main entrances on the headwalls, but accessible by several points, allowing the user to move freely, at all time, and allowing a clear view of the berthing areas.

The wood box, works as a large  lattice and sun protection of the building, so allows a nice integration with the environment in which it  is situated, setting up part of the landscape from a distance, on the approach from the sea.
