Los Cóbanos village: Community Hostel and Restaurant

The informal settlement of houses “Playa Los Cóbanos” is part of the cantón Punta Remedios, municipality of Acajutla, El Salvador, and is located within the Natural Protected Area from Los Cobanos reef.
With the aim of vindicating the human right to decent housing and guaranteeing sustainable livelihoods, I designed a hostel that could work as a refugee for it’s community; and also a market and food court that could be managed by them.
Both projects are part of a master plan, which central axis is self-sustainin housing, and are part of a set of actions that contribute to the integral development by the realization of special projects that respond to the specific needs and characteristics of the place and its inhabitants.
For the development of the master plan I worked with a team (Karen, Javier, and Ernesto) and a mentor (Claudia) who guided us through the project.
