Municipal Games Library in Dólar

CARQUERO ARQUITECTURA | CARLOS QUEVEDO ROJAS, CARLOS PEINADO MADUEÑO

Description Technical file

The use of organic geometries strongly characterises this games library project, which in turn is successfully inserted into the landscape surrounding the municipality of Dólar.

The project for the municipal games library of the municipality of Dólar, in Granada province, was undertaken with a low budget (450€/m2), subsidised with funds from the Agricultural Employment Promotion Programme for the unemployed. The plot is situated on the southern perimeter of this town in the Guadix region. Its arc shape opens on to the rural landscape on the foothills of Sierra Nevada and is attached to a linear dividing line. The building covers an open-plan, functional single storey, organising the service cores to the east and the games library space open to the landscape to the west. Following the organic layout, the main body unfolds to create an exterior space connected to the central nucleus for recreational use. The red and white linoleum floor establishes the zoning of the programme. To give it greater spatial richness in accordance with its function, the roof forgings are fragmented according to a compositional scheme that brings both daylight and ventilation into the principal nucleus.
In construction terms, it took shape with a low budget: a mixed steel and concrete structure, enclosures in thermal clay and lime mortar render, plaster coating and linoleum. The installations are basic: they conceal the external units by making use of the unevenness of the lower forging.
