Text description provided by the architects. 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

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

The organization of a hybrid program means to establish a system of patios as an easy identification system.

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

Under an strict control of sunlight and noise are opened and closed (computers) large glazed panels at north and smaller courtyards that run across the building. 

Elevation

Small handlings of the traditional building permit certain structural achievements at a reasonable cost.
