Ramos Bilbao Arquitectos as Architects

At the express request of the client, a multipurpose space is conceived with the capacity to grow together or be divided into different environments depending on the needs.

The design started from the repetition of the same concrete basic geometric figure, independent by itself, massive, almost cubical that housed each one of the activities. It is placed or stacked according to an ordering based on the program. These prisms, through, are conceived heavy, in concrete, emphasizing the inalterability of natural routes, caves or cavities, which surprise by ending in unexpected places, in this case in a terraced square.

Caption

The design grows through successive stacking and movement in plan, thus achieving a dynamic set of volumes in keeping with the general activity itself. Inside, the different activities are delimited by the intersections of the inclined roofs of each of the prisms, where the mobile dividers will be housed depending on the needs.

Each one of these prisms will be charged with capturing, through its holes, the light received during the day to illuminate at night, as spotlights, the terraced outdoor spaces of the complex.

The outdoor space is donated for public enjoyment, terracing it so that it can be freely traveled and occupied by pedestrians, thus developing not a building, but an urban space whose heart is located in the building itself.
