Description Technical file

A large perforated volume becomes the protagonist of an interesting project for a cultural centre in the city of Santiago de Compostela.

A compact, restrained architectural piece successfully adapts to the scale of its setting, in an exercise of great subtlety and respect for the surrounding landscape.
This civic centre pivots around a double-height void; the foyer becomes the heart of the building, the meeting point, a resting place on the stands and/or stairs leading to the different spaces: multiple-use room, computer room, general bathrooms and offices on the ground floor.
This floor/foyer also contains the installations, although they have independent access; independence also enjoyed by the multiple-use room, either for using it isolated from the rest or as a service entrance. The first floor contains the library and classroom spaces.
Load-bearing thermal clay walls, exposed, whitewashed on the interior; texture and warmth. Horizontal slate slabs on the outside, economy of means and maintenance. Floors also in slate in the access and circulations, wood in the hall, linoleum upstairs. Some walls in plasterboard, the occasional false ceiling. Bronze aluminium joinery on the exterior, wood in the interior. Skylights.
