CEM Espronceda


The new Sports Centre, CEM Espronceda, is conditioned by the plot location, between partywalls. This makes the relationship between the street and the inner courtyard vital.

The project tries to generate a permeability to intensify this relationship, generating a series of squares and a naturalized landscape formed by three rectangular planes. The first, next to the neighbours, of public access is the closest to the neighbours and visitors. The second, on the central track, is a landscape accessible only for maintenance. The third, near the facade of the Sport Centre, is a shaded garden courtyard, a fresh and necessary public space during the summer months. Thanks to the section there are two lateral courts of 8,5 meters and a central court 12,5 meters.

On the other hand, we propose a large public space open to the street, a square-porch from which you will access the patio and the different squares, or inside the sports centre.
