The secular action of Cadaqués population interpreting the natural space and setting out the stone terraces in a dry process for the planting of olive trees and grapes, it is a morphologic characteristic of “Cap de Creus”.

In an olive grove placed at the limit of “Ses Oliveres” beach and a certain distance of the old part of the village, is where that residence is projected. The stone terraces are parallels a the old stream that canalize the “tramontana” dry wind and, following the slope turn to west to receive the freshness of “garbí”… walls between 40 and 70-cm-high that with separations between 4 and5 metres help to exceed the original drop of the topography, placed to continue the line of minimum slope. About 15 olive trees, 10 pines, 5 cypress and 2 mimosas, form the vegetal mass that crosses the plot from the east to the west, leaving a north gab that, as one, answer to the more elevated heights since where we meet again the sea.

The house do not use up all the regulatory height because it searches the horizon between the ground and the olive leaves. New horizontal planes from the old stream since the overhead of the plot turned up, passing through a ground floor that, as a gab inside the dig rock and the pre-existing olives, has a good thermal inertia and crossed ventilation agreed with the dominant winds.

The structure of the bearing wall is drawn up tangent to the original structure of the agricultural construction… The terraces that were removed to build the new topography go back adapting itself to other needs, taking roots of the act of living again in the place.
