Garcimuñoz Castle is a small site with very restricted resources. The central government has paid for the main refurbishment and the small city council will have to maintain the building. The location, just off the Nathional III highway, ensures high volume of public in the sunny holiday periods. “Small resources” and “changing flux of public” have become critical aspects in the realization of the project. That is why the closed off area is minimized and this reduces energy consumption. Most of the project space is used with benign weather, when more people come to visit. In winter, only 200-250 square meters will be used. Most of the site will have “disappeared” in terms of economic and energetic expenses. Architecture will just be kind of ghost waiting for the sun to come up. In summer period, though all of the outside space will open adoling up to 2000 square meters of visiting area. For this purpose all kind of bioclimatic techniques have been used.
