Abstract

The architectural intentions may best be described in the phrases: "symbolic meaning of the environment" - "the spirit of place" - and the need to assure the "historical continuity".

The main points of the program are the following:

1.- to create a service unit corresponding to the needs of the overall development of the micro-region as regards to tourism,

2.- to favor contact between the tourists and the local population,

3.- to express this aim by means of an open type of structure,

4.- to offer a wide range of activities corresponding to the needs and desires of the occupants,

5.- not to destroy the natural and existing environment.
