The Aquarium is located since more than 100 years in a building at the foot of Urgull hill, in one of the most visible places from La Concha bay. The aim of the project was the extension and the restructuring of the building to clarify its structure and therefore, to improve the museum experience. The project was carried out following a very strict phase organisation, which allowed opening the Aquarium during the whole refurbishment process.
