Festival director Paul Finch gave a special director’s award to Plaza España in Adeje, Tenerife, designed by Menis Arquitectos.

The project, which was the winner of the Old and New category, was, Finch said, ‘a love letter from an architect to his own home community.It involved the demolition of an existing building to open up a wonderful view of the mountains. It created a new sense of focus for the community in an island dominated by tourism.
