Dance Centre, Barcelona


Firstly, here’s a little self promotion! My final project in second year involved designing a comunity dance centre within a city square, located in the Barcelona contemporary arts district. The¬†project references surrounding sites, splitting the square into an active side, used for outdoor performance, and a resting square facing a retirement home.

Composed from a simple language of studio volumes, roof canopy and frame, the design places emphasis on permitting/restricting movement through building facades. Interior and exterior social space interpenetrate, forming a boundary condition that protects and shades observers. In the studios, relation to the external environment is through the roof, creating a volume for dancing. High quality material finish ensures these are uplifting spaces.
