The project is located in the walled city of Rada. This is a settlement that served as border fortress of Pamplona to protect the city. During that time there were numerous clashes between Christians and Muslims to take over the territory.
The project abstracts those battles from pitched roofs. The ceramic covers are finished in the top face of the roof with Roman tile, and the other on its underside with Arab designs.
