A container building for the sale and servicing of motor cars of various makes, situated facing the sea in a coastal town to the north of Barcelona. The dealership is laid out over two floors. The mechanics' workshop is in the basement, and opens onto a courtyard. On the first floor, double height with mezzanines, is the showroom and sales area. Construction of a generic roof: among the surrounding greenhouses, this pergola-like structure fronting the sea is constructed of precast concrete, especially visible in the form of the parts of the roof that reveal their section, in the form of the undulating crest that crowns the cornice of the building. The glazed skin runs in front of the studs so that the roof, floating above the horizon, accentuates its considerable length.
