The project is within a plot aimed at urban infrastructure, so that the building’s projection is conditioned by the existence of the adjacent Health Centre located to the north. With access to the underground parking a shared space between both buildings is created.

The Social Services building is organized around a central open space on all floors and crowned by a skylight which is placed around the access paths to each of the rooms. In addition to the common open space there is a core on each floor in which the toilets, elevators, stairs and archives are located.

Around the central space the care rooms, work rooms and equipment rooms are spread over three floors, with the administration and management zone on the top floor. The ground floor is prepared for use for exhibitions and is finished with the assembly hall with its own access from the shared outdoor space.

Some of the rooms are separated by movable partitions allowing greater versatility in use. And they all have natural lighting holes protected from direct sunlight with a lattice that homogenizes it’s external image.
