01 Place. The project is always looking for relationships with the context, framing and capturing visions of the surroundings.
02 Architectural form. The arrangement of uses, architectural spaces and forms in the construction of buildings is put together in a way that results in less energy expenditure.
03 External envelope. Passive systems, carefully studying openings on the facades according to orientation, double skin/cladding, facades that protect from solar gains with reduced needs of active air conditioning systems.
04 Internal configuration. Structural systems that allow for flexibility in spatial organizations. The wet facilities and vertical transport elements are packed together to increase the flexible floor space areas.
05 Environmental Control. Natural cross ventilation to be applied as a comfort factor for circulating air between two walls of different orientations, regulating internal temperature in a sustainable way.
06 Energy and water. The proposal is to achieve maximum comfort with minimum energy consumption through efficient energy use. Water savings systems (more efficient mechanical devices, rainwater collection, and grey water circuits), building energy efficiency (through dimming systems, efficient facade solutions and harvesting solar energy for hot water) and electrical saving systems such as photovoltaic panels, motion detectors and low energy lighting.
07 Materials. Treatment of waste, by creating storage space for selective recycling (organic, mixed, paper, glass and plastic) and using building systems that promote the reuse of materials.
08 Comfort. Psychological comfort to create calm and luminous environments that encourage the activities taking place.

Born in Granada, she took her degree in architecture from the University of Seville, graduating as an architect in 1999. She received his PhD in 2015 from the Universtiy of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria after his final project “PAISAJE LITORAL ATLÁNTICO INSULAR Arquitecturas frente al horizonte, atlas de las charcas mareales”, for which she earned cum laude distinctions.
In 1999, she and Pedro Romera García established the ROMERA Y RUIZ ARQUITECTOS SLP architecture studio in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.
She has worked as a lecturer in Landscape Architecture (2004-2008) and Architectural Projects (2009/2010 and 2011/2012) at the Architecture School in Las Palmas. She has also been General Coordinator of the Second Edition of the Canary Islands Biennal of Arts, Architecture and Landscape; and representative of the COAC at the Insular Committees for Historic Heritage by the Island Government (Cabildo de Gran Canaria) from 2001 to 2005.
