RESIDENCE AND DAY CARE CENTRE FOR THE APPC

-

Tarragona, Spain

The refubrishment of the White Building in Bonavista, is based on the recognition of the qualities of the plot, the potential of the existing building (an old secondary school) and the detailed study of the programmatic requirements. The architectural design promotes clarity and functional flexibility, a proper relationship between interior and exterior, the use of warm, resistant and sustainable materials, volumetric simplicity, and mainly, the improvement of the quality of life of its users. The action proposes to optimize the operation of the new center by re-locating the communication nuclei and bathrooms outside the already built area, and by raising three new bodies (on the ground floor) that complete the program located in the existing building and that generate sheltered courtyards.
