The project is situated in the southeastern part of Tenerife, specifically within the municipality of Güímar. Nestled in the coastal region of the valley is the Puertito de Güímar, an urban center that emerged in the 1970s as a secondary residence in what was once a fishing village. Today, it is characterized by a combination of greenhouses, traditional structures, and a notable expansion of primary residences.

 The task at hand involves the renovation of two homes situated in the Robayna building, built in the late 1960s. Its privileged location near the coast provides ocean views, especially from the upper floors. The initial premises include a narrow span and a layout centered around a narrow courtyard.

The approach for both residences, one on the ground level and the other on the second floor, remains consistent: proposing a reorganization of the layout with a simple scheme. A linear piece of furniture is recommended, serving not only as a housing structure for installations but also encompassing the entire functional program and storage spaces, thereby freeing up the remaining living area. This substantial open space is only punctuated by a transversal strip accommodating the bathroom, functioning as a divider between the two environments.

Concerning the suggested materials, a selection of traditional and genuine elements has been made. These include Ferrés terracotta ceramic flooring, birch wood for the niches, and exposed structural elements like beams and pillars, revealing the concrete employed in the building's construction.
