From the architect. The project deals with how to transform the building site, a wetland of Gandía Beach, at the entrance of the expansion of a campus building. 

Floor Plan
Floor Plan

A place of relationship and reflection. From the constant concern for scale, we find a succession of great public spaces – from the square, patio and access to others more private, refined and proper uses. 

Section

A powerful concrete container is emptied by triple heights oriented from north to south to characterize the areas of reading and the main entrance.
