The San Bernardo Cultural Centre is located in a rural town, on a small plot with a basically square ground plan, fifteen metres per side. The programme for the Centre includes an assembly hall, which is to operate as a multipurpose space for holding conferences, exhibitions and performances, and three workshops, also seen as highly versatile spaces that can operate as classrooms, meeting rooms or as a small library, depending of the needs of each moment.

Situated in Fuerteventura, the second larger Island of the Canary ISlands, the house is located in Triquivijate, a small location in the middle of a desertic landscape.

The house was projected for a family of four people with young children in a very windy area, so one of the main requirements from the clients was that the children could have the chance to spend a lot of time playing outside but protected from the winds.
