For a post covid era, Jenga, proposes a new three-dimensional urban living room for Sanxenxo’s multifunctional center.

In an extremely compact urban context, our proposal finds an opportunity to provide new relations between public space and the city.

A string of high-rise plazas generates open-air spaces for the specific program.

Each plaza has a different experience for the user, ending up with the best panoramic view of Sanxenxo’s bay.
