The renovated single family house is located in the historical city center of La Laguna, Tenerife, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Priori to the renovation, the house was ruined due to the abandonment which it had suffered for decades.
It is a traditional patio-house with a structure of massive walls covered by a wooden structure made of Canarian pine called tea. Its composition is simple and its strictly simetric facade still shows the dignity of an old house of the 18th century. During the course of years the house had been transformed, enlarged, and sometimes damaged.

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.
