Project of energetic rehabilitation in a housing blocks island in Badia del Vallès

Architecture - Sustainability - Social Inclusion

THE IDEA OF THE PROJECT IS TO IMPROVE THE SOCIAL RELATIONSHIPS AND THE QUALITY OF LIFE OF THE INHABITANTS OF A MUNICIPALITY USING THE ARCHITECTURE AS TOOL

1. Potential of the municipality where the project is located

2. Place where the project is located in the municipality

Scheme of the strategy of the project

The strategy is to create a relation between the municipality and the environment that now does not exist. (Relation with gardens, workshops, fish-ponds of companies and UAB)
To adapt the housing floors to their user’s lifestyles.
To do the flats sufficiently flexible because they could receive different types of users, promoting this way the complicity between them.
To create zones of extra spaces to improve the quality and thermal efficiency of the flats
To inhabit the roofs generating an appreciation that finances the other interventions to the buildings.
To create a system of industry and workshops to the public spaces of the municipality and to the ground floors.
To reduce priority to the car inside the municipality for an improvement of the urban quality and to promote this way the public transport.
