New ruins in Lacipo – Casares, Spain

The ancient roman ruins of Lacipo, near the actual village of Casares, are not as well-known as the should be according to their importance at that time. Hidden among trees and vegetation, something needs to be made so that they recover their appeal. The project focuses on bringing people and Lacipo closer through nature, almost without construction, to emphasize the ruins instead of the new structures.

At the entrance we find a half demolish barn where the reception can be found. A structure made up of straw sunshades works as roof to for the information center and shows what noninvasive look we wanted to give to the whole project.
