A car workshop in the Roma Sur is transformed into a working place for artists, suitable for hosting exhibitions, generate encounters and experiences with the community. The original structure of the industrial building, as well as the aesthetics of the building, are maintained and become more evident serving as a working base for the users. The architectural project is independent of the existing and is developed in its own language, creating a clear contrast between the new and the old. Playfull forms are introduced to flow with the space. The project is characterized by simple geometries and a dynamic composition of few pieces with specific programs: A configuration of different volumes, patios and independent walls are arranged in a dispersed formation allowing all kinds of interactions and actions to occur in the resulting intermediate areas. The spaces vary in proportion, shape and light conditions creating a highly flexible and adaptable project.
