MULTI-FUNCTIONAL PAVILION IN VILADRAU, Spain by MIRAG

Friday, June 28th, 2013

Article source: MIRAG

The challenge on the enlargement of this therapeutic centre -‘Riera Major’, located in a privileged site in the outskirts of Viladrau, Girona- was, on the one hand, to offer an improved relation between the patient and the surrounding nature through a reinterpretation of traditional constructions of the area. And on the other hand, to study the real needs of the centre in order to offer them a moderate, affordable solution.
