Abama social club in Guía de Isora (Tenerife)

Eustaquio Martínez García  Virgilio Gutiérrez 


This club is located in the Canarian municipality of Guía de Isora, on the island of Tenerife. The site has an irregular shape and a gentle descent westward, commanding views of La Gomera. The amenities set down in the brief – swimming pool, solarium, public square, shops, restaurants, and underground parking – are organized in four stepped levels embedded into the sloping terrain. The frames are arranged in parallels and strictly towards the sunset, determining the strategy for the layout of uses. The chimney appeared shortly before completion of construction, when it was decided that a new restaurant, with its kitchen, should be included on the lower floor. A metal structure with an oval-shaped floor plan and rising 13 meters, clad in wood, conceals the gas-extraction system and nestles itself into the garden.
