Santa Cruz de Tenerife
- Arquitectura Civil y Doméstica. Anterior al S.XX -

Project written in 1896 by Antonio Pintor and Ocete as homes and commercial premises. The works were completed at the beginning of 1898. It was a fairly novel building for what was then done in the city, pouring numerous comments and policies. The S nger house is part of the most interesting ecological buildings in Santa Cruz. In the facade that gives the street of the Castle four pilasters allow to split the front in three streets, leaving the power station as the narrowest but the one of greater wealth. On the contrary, the facade to Teobaldo Power is reduced its ornamentation, although the distribution of the holes and their forms is much more interesting. For the union of both facades, in the same corner, Painter used a solution widely used by him in his constructions, consisting of smoothing the encounter of the walls by rounding out the shapes delimited by sticks. The two-story building has as its separation a differentiating molding between the two, which serves as a false base, while the capital is built by a section of cornice that breaks to keep it. Today it belongs to the Parliament of the Canary Islands. Both the interior of the building, as well as the exterior, where a body with features that are radically opposed to the construction style has been added, has undergone major transformations.
