Architecture itself is a powerfull intervention in natural environments. The founders of muarco made high demands on the architectural design and the technical solutions.

As a person, I don’t want to build my fortune on someone else’s misfortune. The task of showing, protecting and preserving for the architecture of a museum should not be based on the destruction of nature.

Juan Petry

Old windows are refurbished and reused.

Mortar and plaster is based on local excavation soil.

Local construction material like ceramic bricks are used.

Donations of material from companies and friends are used as well.

Necessary construction chemistry is limited to a minimum.

Also the building itself is embedded in the natural environment between productive almond and carob trees.
