Public Library in Villaverde
Location: Madrid, España Type: Competition Date: December 2018 Client: Madrid Council
The new Pubic Library in Villaverde (Madrid) relates to the neighborhood by creating a new open public space where people can meet and socialize. It is a culture hub where people can share their ideas and learn from each other.
We propose an innovative design where all spaces are connected visually, generating a big ´public living room´ where the different activity areas flow connecting both the main entrance and the secondary entrance located at a lower level street, on the other side of the plot. The distinct uses are organized through the central ramp which connects the different levels at both ends.
The main body has huge windows at either end to emphasize the outside-inside connection.
