This project looks to recover the beach and the public space without altering the social and economic dynamics of the community. The vehicular use is restricted and a paved pedestrian path is projected, acknowledging the specific use of the places consolidated by the community and integrating the vegetation with large planters that also serve as infiltration areas during rainy seasons. Seventeen kiosks, one information module, toilets and urban furniture, are all organically arranged on the residual areas. The project is conceived in local materials.
