The proposal was based on a number of characteristic features such as topographical adaptation to the existing natural terraces, its positioning in the terrain and landscape relationship with the environment, make this proposal a new icon of the village where 'be' present (singular building) will never contradict to 'sharing' the environment (public space). Its urban integration, its direct communication with the existing equipment and its visual relationship with the people make this proposal a teaching reference in Ullastrell cityscape.
Solar located at the entrance of Ullastrell village between the BV -1203 road, municipal pool and Cultural Village center.
The proposal is set from some buildings that are located in the highest part of the site; these building accommodate are topographically to the solar natural terraces leaving the most depressed part of the solar unbuilt (sports ground + patio area) improving the visual flow and the relationship between different municipal facilities in the village.
The building 'reveals and be seen'; integration within the solar makes it permeable to the neighboring buildings and the people themselves. The important references of Ullastrell (Turo Rector, Church bell, Casal Cultural, Sports court, Swimming Pools, etc) will be seen from the new school and its fifth facade will converted into public space that will give added value to the immediate environment, present and future of the people of Ullastrell.
Within the proposal we made a to obtain those values that will help to understand better the correct building energy efficiency. 'Active and passive' improvements are proposed to improve their performance and optimize their consumption.
