Terra Membrane is a functional miniature of one kindergarten and one nursery unit, with all the associated spaces and zones that allow the functioning of the building as an independent one ( kitchen, utility, offices...).The triangular plot shape is an ungrateful template , but with the idea of preserving olives on the plot, an irregular, fluid-shape is formed, maximally following the plot shape and forming atriums around existing olive trees. The olives remain present, not only around the building, but also through its tissue, emphasizing the permeation of the natural and man-made.
