Camouflage is the strategy chosen for the design of the new storage building for the municipality of Alfaz de Pi. Instead of a “simulation” of the environment, the project tends to “dissimulate” it, operating through folding and dissolution of figure-ground relationships (or denying the building objectuality).

The main volume is partially buried taking advantage of the smooth of the terrain. The roof is formed by folded bands with sinusoidal geometry and covered with native plants. The interior natural lighting is introduced through the gaps between the folded bands of the roof.
