square in la reina, ceuta by Carlos Perez Marin

After one year, it seems the works for the urban renovation in La Reina neighbourhood are going to start very soon, according to the publications on local medias (El Faro de Ceuta, Ceuta al Día).

It is a small project but once again we tried to provide the maximum of confort to inhabitants with the minimum budget (this time, 60 000€). We also dedicated a lot of time to design the wooden benches instead of choosing them from a catalog. For more information about the project click on the image.
