ADAPTATION TO ENVIRONMENT
Located on the northern slopes of the Park-mountain of Montjuic , the plot is characterized by dense vegetation and a very steep slope that is only interrupted by two large natural terraces.
The building is placed gently between them by rotating one of its wings to preserve the maximum masses of vegetation and to minimize the impact on the plot.

The commission was for a building for after-school care for 10 children in special youth care (aged from 6 to 18, non-residential) with a staff room on the first floor.
Apart from the project definition, the assignment was to both find a connection with the existing buildings (terrace houses) and to create a passage/transition to an urban park. We chose not to add an end volume to the row which would have been at the expense of valuable trees, as they fill and complete the already existing gabariet. We reversed the logic: we leave valuable green for the city; we don’t make terrace house typologies and created a pavilion in the garden This pavilion is rooted between the trees and the green. By using the garden wall as a main theme there is almost no physically present building.

The project’s main aim is to create a pleasant building for senior citizens, a space where they feel comfortable and one they can identify with.
