Brief: "Workshop with access to the port"
Concept of the project: "Need of student spaces and urban connection"
2014 / Architectural Design III
E.T.S. de Arquitectura de Valladolid
This project is located in a small parcel near a nautical port, between dividing walls and occupied with a ruined building.
The program is divided according to the necessary level of privacy (public-private), creating the houses in the higher areas, and the training spaces at the bottom. A new street is created, that crosses the plot towards the port level, and at the same time lights the basement area. There is a good relationship between the street and the sea; moreover, the passers-by can learn about the collective’s activities.
This development generates a public square over the basement, expanding the available urban space and generating a look out towards the bay and the port. The top floors are developed around a central yard capable of illuminating the spaces, placing on the facade some movable trusses that give dynamism to the whole element.
