Located at Turo de la Peira,  one of the lowest income neighborhoods of Barcelona, the project consist of a urban regeneration which introduces a new compact sports facility building made out of a woodem structure and reintroduces nature into the previously degradated interior courtyard, creating a new garden that contributes to the city environmental quality and serves as a support for biodiversity.

The project outcome has been a shift from a grey & concrete-based environment to a welcoming place surrounded by nature.

A new place of social relation, as a filter of the commercial activity of the surroundings, structured in different zones; spaces for the elderly, children's playground area and places of leisure.
The new sports facility building will integrate a public swimming pool on its ground floor and a sports court on the top level.The building is considered as another element of the garden.The green of the garden bends and ascends to the new building Green hydroponic facade, which integrates local species and serves as a bioclimatic filter. Passive architecture,Cross laminated timber structure CLT(100% certified PEFC and FSC), efficient MEP systems and renewable energy(PV panels cover the entire roof deck)
