First work of the freelance office of architectural services, ARCONS, in 2009. It was performed with a very low budget and very limited resources, but personal involvement was important. In the summer of 2010 it expanded with themoney raised from the previous season. The initial idea was to finish the extention of the establishment in order to work also throughout the whole year as a fish tavern, but the project stalled in 2011. The client was very happy and most of the initial project objectives were completed. The beach bar, complex facilities and gardens have brought bustling life in harmony and respect for nature, in this forgotten corner of the Gritsa Beach. Since opening the establishment has been a resounding success during each summer season and already has regular customers.

Primera obra de la oficina independiente de servicios de arquitectura, ARCONS, en el año 2009. Se realizó con un presupuesto muy bajo y unos recursos muy limitados, pero la implicación personal fue importante. En el verano del 2010 se amplió con el dinero que se recaudó de la temporada anterior. La idea inicial era terminar de ampliarlo para que elestablecimiento también funcionara durante todo el año como taberna especializada en pescados, pero el proyecto se paralizó en el 2011. El cliente quedó muy contento y más de la mayoría de los objetivos del proyecto inicial se cumplieron. El bar de playa y su complejo de instalaciones ajardinadas han vuelto a traer bulliciosa vida, en armonía y respeto por la naturaleza, a este rincón olvidado de la playa de Gritsa. Desde su inauguración, el establecimiento ha tenido un éxito rotundo durante cada temporada estival y ya cuenta con clientes habituales.
