Especies d’Espais

Transparency and permeability as social values for the new mixed used building of Besos-Maresme neighborhood in Barcelona. Especies d’espais is a complex building with different kind of programs; city council departments, cinema, study rooms, housing social offices, civic roof, social entities. The building is born from the will of revitalize and transforms the area where it sits from the social and urban levels. It is for that reason that the clear, efficient and tide volume is conceived like a big transparent and permeable layer. This layer at the same time is the container of all the activities done in the interior of the building. It allows connecting visually the activities that are taking place in the interior with the social surroundings of the exterior; it works as symbol of integration and openness of the social and public entities of the neighborhood to its citizens.
