Located in one of the lowest income neighborhoods of Barcelona, the project is based on peoples needs,  urban regeneration and the re-introduction of nature to the interior courtyard, by creating a new garden that contributes to the city environmental quality and serves as a support for biodiversity. The structure of the garden gives consistency to the previous degradated space full of concrete, framed by a heterogeneous urban tissue. 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 basketball 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. Passive architecture,Cross laminated timber structure CLT, efficient MEP systems and renewable energy to achieve a Nearly zero-energy building NZEB.
