The building occupies 851m2 in the north side of the lot. The volume is conformed through the combination of white prisms added without any planning. The structure is organized in two floors offering the north façade towards the Plaza and the Church of San Antonio. In the south side there is a sport area to recover, including a petanque area to cover, and a barbecue area inaccessible to disable people.

The actual facility presents important deficiencies, as the insufficient infrastructure systems, the partially covered patio, the low height of the scenario (2.27mts), the poor connexion with the existing Plaza of San Antonio, the lack of requirements fulfilments in of fire evacuation and disable people accessibility.

Therefore, Güime Civic Center develops the following Project strategies:

  1. Improve the thermal insulation response of the building increasing the thickness of the perimeter wall and incorporating insulation boards.
  2. Improve the sewage infrastructure network of the building with a separate system in sanitary and storm sewages.
  3. Improve the conditions in case of fire evacuation through a new plan layout creating direct and wider connections to secure spaces.
  4. Improve the structure conditions through the addition of a new central box that reinforces existing structure and suppressing unnecessary slabs.
  5. Improve central functional space incorporating a white box, able to cover, illuminate, ventilate and organize a wider performance space surrounded by a multipurpose corridor environment.
  6. Improve the accessibility suppressing different steps or tight corridors in the existing building.
  7. Improve the connection of the building towards the northern plaza and the southern sport area, creating a permeable transversely.
