Calafell is one of those small towns along the coast of Catalonia which, over the years, have ceased to be just summer resorts to become active all year round, with a growing number of primary residencies. In 2007, we started work on a project to group together in the district of “Calafell Beach” a series of facilities for the new residents that the town has gained. In this initial grouping, a pre-school centre, an infant and primary school, a civic centre and a library were connected with the market to turn an existing over-ground car park into a vital part of Calafell’s civic and social life. Despite the economic crisis, it has been possible to build one of these elements, and today it seems that the initial plan can still be achieved, in anticipation of times of greater prosperity to complete the network of facilities originally planned.
