The construction of the Maritime Museum was focused on preserving its historical legacy and cultural transmission. The proposal covered the functional organisation of spaces, the architecture and fittings, in this sense seeking integration with the environment, flexibility of internal spaces, modularity, making the most of natural light and the possibility of carrying out work and extending in phases.

A series of different areas were outlined for the collections, the museum staff and the public; and the distribution, volume and layout were defined, taking into account the general operation and programme, which would meet the study, educational, cultural and leisure objectives of a museum.

The main museum building was developed underneath the Euskalduna roundabout, in an existing structure, where practically the only contact with the exterior is a small part of the façade, consisting of an opening in the wall that leaves the existing structure bare and thus highlights the main entrance to the museum.
