The projects’s adaptation to the environment
Based on plot characteristics and the requested program and its surface,
it was decided the following:
– To generate a maximum line of building occupancy with a distance of 3.5 meters from the limits of the plot. In this manner, it is possible to have air within the bordering plot.
– To organize the program in an elongated band which is located on the north side of the plot. As a result, the maximum exposition is received by the south part and it does not shadow the rest, it ends the plot on the limit and it creates a north windscreen for the external program developing in the ground floor a unique height.
– This programmatic band bends on the extreme north to construct the plot’s closing on the limits of the northeast and it creates access to the principal entrance in the campus.
– A new topography connected with the existing one picks up the ground floor and allows: To potentiate the integration of the campus within the environment. It turns out to be the same referent as the Castellciutat which is a building sitting in the territory. To generate a valley of activities inside the mountain which is protected by the perimetral topography.
