Surrounded by eight-floor buildings and taking up an obsolete esplanade which previously was a basketball court, ‘Macarena Social – CyberCentre’ rests in this place generating a small access garden, which together with a porch vinculated to a cafeteria and a multipurpose room, are offered as a wi-fi neighbours’ meeting and leisure room.
Over these spaces, a volume lined with red lacquered sheet risen up. It is a simple and overwhelming piece where computer classrooms, workshops and offices are placed. It creates a singular view, focal point in this district area. The flat roof is offered as a terrace to hold events and as river viewing point, retrieving this way, the occupied free space, to be used differently by neighbours.
