A new topography that integrates pedestrian accessibility, existing palms and permeable surfaces.
Julio Navarro Swimming Club is located in a privileged area dominated by green areas and parks. The project consists of the renovation of the existing pedestrian onnection between the two existing swimming pools; adapting it to the needs of people with physical disabilities and reduced mobility. These aspects together with the landscape integration of the existing palms and trees have been the main driving logics of the proposal. The design consists of a triangular mesh that articulates the main components of the project: the linear pathway of staircases, the zig-zag ramps and the triangular mesh itself. The result is a coherent topography of triangular planes in which the resulting landscape is more than the sum of its functional components. The use of net stones, along with gardens and draining materials, means that more than 60% of the project´s components are permeable surfaces.
