It started to work in 1960, and finally it was donated to the local government at the end of 90´s. The warehouse is composed of three connected storage units with separated access and a total area of one thousand and two hundred square meters.

The actions were made without obstructing future interventions. The project is solved by a lamp, a tunnel and a wall. Working with materials and forms, without looking to camouflage into the old building. The links between the new elements and the old warehouse turn on the space and solve the initial requirements, at the same time it enables the emergences of new situations and activities which enrich the project. It´s a re-discovery and Re-appropriation of an space that was present but hidden to us.
