Carlos Santamaría Centre in San Sebastián, Spain by JAAM sociedad de arquitectura

Wednesday, January 2nd, 2013

Article source: JAAM sociedad de arquitectura

The Carlos Santamaría Centre, located in San Sebastian, is an advanced data centre and library, linked to the Ibaeta University Campus.

The building is conceived as a huge container, shaped from a spontaneous outline following the natural curve of the plot. The line is the wall containing the two blocks arranged in a north-south direction, and its vertex is at the place we consider the most important: the building’s main access, which opens up like a large mouth, pointing the vertex towards the sky.
