The Catalan team of Twobo arquitectura + Luis Twoso worked on the hundred-year-old plant that extracted mineral waters coming from a 70-meter-deep aquifer in Vilajuïga, a municipality of the Girona comarca of Alt Empordà, located near the Cap de Creus natural park. The aim was a total revamp of the original facilities (factory, wells, storage) and the addition of new ones (training classrooms, exhibition spaces, offices).
Above ground, the project arranges, cleans up, and refines the details of an enclave that features a farmhouse from the year 1800, some small stables, and a more recent building. In the garden was a circular pool reaching down 6 meters, an old underground brick water tank turned into an auditorium. Digging was carried out around this unique element to expose the curving wall, in the process generating skylights, ramps, and a round pond.
