Project

The building stems out of the development of the area, takes advantage of its topography and becomes an extension of the public space, transforming the unencumbered outdoor space into a bonding and supportive social space that provides what’s needed: activity and people. Interior and exterior intertwine generating two new squares leveraging the gradient of the land. The outcome is a building where the line between inside and outside dilutes. The upper square/roof works as a viewing platform overlooking the Collserola range and the Casa de les Aigües building. The respect for the environment manifests in the use of the same ceramic material that merges the urban development with the building itself. Ceramic benches and banisters define its perimeter acting as skylights that bring sunlight into the interiors. The building, classed with an A energy rating, minimizes the energy demand thanks to the use of passive design tools and efficient and renewable energy sources.
