SSS_02_2007_community_building_and_gardens_and_parking_Lorqui_Murcia_06In a semi-arid climate we discover an oasis with date palms, bushes and flowers. Recovering back all the natural assets of the site we settle an endless flat roof around an old massive house creating a sinuous-shaped courtyard.

Swimming pool`s conceptual idea

SSS_02_2007_community_building_and_gardens_and_parking_Lorqui_Murcia_28The outside garden extends as a green natural blanket dissolving and spreading out the limits of the interior rooms. At night the ring illuminates the surrounding area as a flying saucer would have just landed.
