The ASWR (Abalos Sustainable Wellness Resort) project aims to integrate itself both in Abalos Bay ecosystem and within the cultural and architectural tradition of La Gomera island. In this sense, it has been necessary to understand and make visible the ravine ecosystem and the way in which traditionally La Gomera popular architecture has been built there. 

The main strategies of the project are the respectful attitude towards water runoff and, on the other hand, to protect itself from the winds channeled through the ravines. Traditionally, buildings were never placed extensively along the slopes, but were concentrated vertically along roads and trails.
