The Marina Port Vell in Barcelona is extending and improving its facilities in order to provide service to an increasing demand of cruising yachts. The project involves the construction of two buildings on the water and the landscape management of 16,000 m2 of quayside.

The buildings are covered by a lattice that has been specially designed for this project. It provides protection against solar radiation, strong winds and saline environment. Its sheerness, soft and rounded shapes provide warmth and lightness to the buildings.

 The project imitates the way fishermen erect a tent using a large net, in order to protect themselves from sunlight during the summer months.
