Ibaiondo Civic Centre


This idea for this competition for a civic centre in Lakua, Vitoria was to design 3 simple coloured cubes which each contain a function of the building:
Red - Sports, Blue – Swimming Pool, Yellow – Social/Cultural.

The cube´s double facades are clad in coloured semi transparent policarbonate are raised 4 metres above street level and in-between them a new spacious foyer is created. There is a new square with a pool to reflect these vibrant colours which would bring a new focal point for this part of Lakua.
