Design: Antonio Blanco Montero

New Building near Seville

The functions that contain a center for social services can classify in a wide and varied spectrum from the administrative processing, beyond the psychological attention. All of them are characterized with a residue of uncertainty and instability. It offers the possibility to investigate relationships between uses. Give certain properties of spaces through the honesty of materials. Capture life and keep it inside the building, but not limited to certain functions harboring fleeing to build a container detached from the outside world, the one that causes and solve.

Becoming aware of the reality needed to face, there are three elements that set the way to take: A not short of needs program to reach the objectives, and the complexity in their relationships. Urban planning limits building height and floor area. A complicated location results of the fragmentation of near-circular end of a block, with a certain air of immediacy, in which the traditional pattern of building façade line and coop at the back of the plot did not demand major requirements.

The access, through the intermediate level, leads an atrium that involves the three levels, which invites to recognize the building at first look, so as to convey a feeling of hospitality. It’s important to avoid certain conventions for privacy, inherited from obsolete forms to understand the work that take cover in schemes with numerous filters. This behavior separates the relationship with the user. In this sense, those services for groups are located with immediate access, while the filters that channel those individualized services are minimized.

The overlapping of activities, relationships and constant visual juxtaposition of paths, helps us understand the unintended catalyst vocation of the building, looking for the ability to convey a certain sense of optimism.
