This fishing refuge is 200 years old and was kept unnoticed in the middle of the urban area of the fishing village of Redes. It's one of the oldest houses of this typology still standing, deserted in 1998, when negotiations began for its rehabilitation. The large window towards the sea justifies itself as adjustment of the former refuge to the new uses of leisure in the village, where fishing is now obsolete. Ancient and lived materials are used: parts of Pontedeume's remodelled rail road, which passes by, heads of puntones of pine - torch, recovered from constructions of an estuary, which support the panelling of the same wood in the interior. In the centre of the maritime range, where the coast bows towards the west, the refuge acts as an urban hinge, creating a limited and reasonable unit for a family. Rail road parts pave the environment of the refuge and when it rains we can still smell the rail road and the ancient station of the train-line Ferrol-Pontedeume.
