Text description provided by the architects.

The plot is located in a very difficult
landscape and it covers the The Plaza España, on the edge of the Barranco del
Infierno (ravin) and the buildings between the Church and the ravin.
This
project creates new spaces and buildings for the municipality under the ground
of Plaza España.

There are 2 essential elements: on one side there is the
Sacred Museum of Adeje and on the other side the rehabilitation and widening of
the Plaza España.
The building which is a museum is designed
as a half-buried building with an upper space used as cafeteria and underground
floors used as spaces for exhibitions.

The Plaza España is going to be twice
and a half wider than the original plaza and creates a permanent stage and
spaces for the municipality.
The materials used combine rough and
polished concrete and basalt..
