The equipment in question, a sports pavilion, was designed along with a swimming pool building that will be built at a later stage. Although independent of each other there was the need of involving both in a common logic occupation of territory, minimizing negative urban and landscape impact. The building
The need to bring it south of the school complex could cut the school's relationship with the landscape due the volumetrically imposes which such a program demands.
Therefore, taking the natural slope of the ground, a lower level modeling was created in order to integrate this with the proposed doubling of the access way roads, situated at an intermediate elevation. Moreover, the arrangement of buildings along the way helps to consolidate the urban space of the school complex, responding to the need for clarification of the public and private spaces of the college. Thus, public parking is attached to the main street with access to the pavilion by the top spring. The basic concept was to simplify the accessibility in a clearly way so that, in its work process, the institution's privacy is not disturbed.
The distribution route runs through a main axis - the hallway - giving access to all services related to the sports activities (showers, toilets, health room, storage and technical areas).
When defining the program we were asked a bench that, despite their presence in the sports arena, should exclusively be affected to school events (Christmas parties, Easter ceremonies and recreational activities), and not in any way related to the care and display of sporting activities.
Wood and concrete are the most prominent elements of the building. The choice of wood on the outside surface, beyond its technical and plastic gains, was conceived to make a visual approach related to the memory of the place (an ex-farm) and assigned to the reality of rural exploitation building, such as storages and barns.
The green roof also sought the effect of continuit, balancing the existing vegetation in the complex, forming - together with the built volume - a "valley", minimizing the volumetric impact.
