The competition convened by the Government of Valencian Community for the grant of management services of the marina within the Port of Denia included a Management and Customer Services Building which should be characterized by its permability, that is to say, not to be an obstacule between the city of Denia and the sea.

A timber surface rests on the ground and a cut and a fold generate a frame, outlining the two landscapes tan can be seen from it: the town crowned by the castle and the marina, the open sea and the horizon. Beneath the lintel, the brief is housed in a closed area, where the main functions of the building are located, an open area, an exterior extension of the restaurant and café. This simple formal operation introduces the least possible visual intrusion while giving a new, nuanced view of the town´s seaward façade in a language that clearly alludes to the maritime activities that take place in this point.

The requirements of the brief are laid out in the rectangular, single-storey building within the shared wrapping of the roof. They compromise the following areas:

-Administration, Shipping Control and Harbourmaster´s office

-Customer Facilities and Services

-Crew Facilities and Services

-Restaurant and lounge area

The brief is laid out crosswise in two zones: an exterior zone for the restaurant/cafeteria terrace and a covered, closed zone for the other requirements. Longitudinally, it is also divided into two zones: a service zone (facilities and services for customers and crew members), which presents a solid blank wall to the car park, a zone for attending to the public (restaurant and lounge area, administration, shipping control and harbourmaster´s office), completely transparent and open to the town and the marina.

In summary, under the same enclosure it is possible to bring together all activities of the building, while it is provided a qualified place from which one is able to see and be seen without giving up a contemporary language that is, at the same time, respectful with the environment.
