The building is located on a very steep hillside, in which it integrates itself as a landscape element facing the old town. The project creates a façade to the main street from which three volume emerge towards the landscape. These volumes adapt to the geometry of the natural environment that surrounds them, and open themselves to the landscape of Baena like “ojos que miran” (staring eyes). A series of terraces in between generate a sightseeing garden for elderly people, where they will play sports or practice gardening. An architectural object to be seen and to look from.
