 RCR. Inside the library in Sant Antoni. Barcelona

This centre incorporates a varied programme to dynamise the free space generated on the inside of the block. This programme includes a neighbourhood library as its door, a home for retirees, creating counterpoint and social cohesion, and a children’s play area on the patio. The entrance along with the library searches for the identification and insinuation of green space and inner openness. It allows light in between the boxes inserted in the reading rooms and turns the patio entrance into a passage filtered with light like the trees that let light in. Children and grandparents enjoy the thematic patio-garden spaces. The home creates a real quality closure (like a thick strip that provides clear geometry to the space and protects the constructions on the existing ground floors). The closure is facade and not wall, evocative in that the emptiness between the edges creates the illusion of a continuously growing green space.
