The intervention consists of the interior reform of an existing building, to transform it into some small tourist apartments.
▼建筑外观（邻海侧），exterior view (near the sea)
In a passing plot, placed in front of the sea, we find a two-volume construction: one of ground floor plus one, which looks towards the sea and that is accompanied by a ground floor porch; and another one of ground floor plus two, which looks at the back street. In an initial state, both the accesses and stairs, as well as the distributions were appearing chaotically untidy.

▼压碎的colombrins粘土铺地，the residue of crushed “colombrins” can be used as clay gravel
All the effort of the project centers on opening the space in a longitudinal way, so that is possible to visually connect the sea and the back street. The strategy consists in arranging and condensing all the services against the party walls. Stairs, closets, kitchens and bathrooms line up and accumulate against these walls.

The clay as a humble and usual material. A range of different pieces gives a precise response to the different constructive needs. The “Termoarcilla”, placed on edge, shows its condition: it’s not a bearing wall, nor an acoustic one. The tile covers, sometimes the pavement, with a very wide joint, sometimes the walls, with a narrower joint. The glazed tile sometimes also protects the water surfaces. In some points the tile protects of the oxide coming from the iron rails. The residue of crushed “colombrins” can be used as clay gravel.
