location Barcelona
function community centre, library
contributed by Jose_Garcia

The varied brief recovers the interior space of a block to make the urban setting more dynamic. The library, used as a gateway, filters the light through the reading room boxes inserted between the two lateral units. This way, sunlight is allowed to enter through the space running from the street into the garden. The centre for the elderly configures the public space of the inner block with its frontal wall and its rear courtyard. It becomes an element of social cohesion by encouraging interaction between the children playing in the courtyard and the elderly people who come and go. The garden, with its trees and earthen paving, is presented as an extension of the library's reading rooms.
