Under the tittle “A place for the community” the prestigious italian magazine DOMUS introduces El Roure and La Ginesta
The design process has crystallised a chain of synergies among organisations, administrations, technicians, citizens and the place itself. It began with the definition of an agreed and adequate functional programme and it culminated in the name’s choice by the citizens of Begues and the cataloguing process of a downy oak for its cultural value. Two main ideas underpin the conception of the new facility: to generate a confluence “inner square” and to tune into the environment revitalising the Stream.
The project outlines a single building which gathers the three services, creating a community space, a place where people meet, which will enhance citizen interaction, cultural synergy and sustainability in its construction and management.
