位于西班牙瓜达拉哈拉省(Guadalajara)Azuqueca de Henares的休闲中心由一系列相互连接的房间构成。流动性布局目的在于以现代化的手法呈现传统的社交俱乐部模式,内部游戏室、休息室以无序地方式聚集在一起,成为阅读、游戏、聊天和跳舞的理想场所。

The leisure centre in Azuqueca de Henares, in the province of Guadalajara, is made up of a set of interconnected rooms. Its fluid distribution aims to offer a contemporary version of the traditional social club, whose games rooms and lounges were amassed in a disorderedly fashion and were ideal for reading, playing games, chatting and dancing.

The centre consists of a low south-facing pavilion (which serves as a scenic backdrop to a plot meant for amenities and a park opposite the town hall building), and a vertical volume that accommodates the centre’s offices, storage facilities and other annexes. This element serves as a counterpoint and creates a visual focus in the urban ensemble.

The spatial scheme, construction systems and building services, ventilation, external protection and landscaping of the project have been carefully planned in order to create certain atmospheric effect but also to create the first building in Spain to be constructed with zero emissions of noxious gases. The centre is based on a typology of concatenated spaces and alternating patios, a typology well known in the building traditions of the Castilian plateau, as well as on the use of planted roofs and the harnessing of geothermal energy.
