Elevated Public Space


The roof of the social center is a key element in our proposal. By elevating the outdoor public spaces onto the roof of the Social Center for aging citizens, we are able to magnify the public space

and we can It is a vegetated roof and acts not only as an accessible space for the building users but adds a visual break within the dense built scape of la Ribera. It is a ludic space, it is contains an horticulture center, surrounded by circulation spaces and long patches of native Mediterranean shrubs. Its center is occupied by a “petanque” area.
