From the architect. The works of this project are to adapt the existing structure of a sheltered housing to Day Centre, modifying partition sections and equipping of the facilities required for this type of building , with the basic principles of comfort, maintenance economy, functionality, and a representative image and attractiveness linked to traditional facades in the Mancha.
It is essential to adequately address the provision of facilities for the proper functioning of a day center, but it is also essential to find a system that allows flexibility of use, essential in these cases, dimension partitioning controlled areas without losing the advantages a single large space can provide.
The proposed building consists of two floors above ground, eliminating the rigidity of spaces by implementing movable partitions in strategic, ensuring adaptability to use that space plays in every moment.
Being a land of great depth in relation to the width of the plot, we introduce two courtyards inside the building to get natural light in all rooms.
Variations on deck height and tilt allow implementation of skylights, creating a play of light that invade the interior space by changing the environment in every moment of the day.
