Set of outdoor pools solved from fragmentation. Approach which, on the one hand, framing views of the skyline of Alicante on the sea and on the other, to design small blind constructions outside and with plenty of indirect natural light inside, along with optimum own natural ventilation of bioclimatic designs.
Bioclimatic design conditions. Talk about bioclimatic design means to talk about natural lighting and ventilation, thermal comfort, energy saving, ... take advantage of the natural conditions of the environment and minimize artificial. The outward appearance of white objects is blind pieces colored by the access hole and small perforations that fall on an inner courtyard. The interior space is defined by an abundance of natural light. The courtyard design allows to save the apparent contradiction. The interior walls, including the courtyard, are covered with white glazed ceramic that reflects light reached by the patio. Its curved design and inclined elevation allow direct reflection of the light in all directions and inward. Ventilation also occurs naturally (access-yard), renewing the humid air inside. This ventilation, combined with no direct sunlight on the inside and the thermal insulation on each side of the space produce a natural thermal regulation. Consequently it is not necessary to use air conditioning.
Energy-saving conditions. Zero energy consumption in thermal conditioning as a result of being resolved naturally. Contribution of 70% in the consumption of energy for domestic hot water set by solar energy collectors. Use of energy efficient lighting. Use of natural lighting conditions. Study unit sports complex: swimming pools, pavilion and tennis court order to optimize energy consumption.
Materials and construction process. Recycling, processing of material: use of rock extracted from the excavation of the vessels for prior crushed on site, using it as one of the components firm in raceways. Use of recyclable materials: wood, steel, glass, ceramics and mortars (aggregate). Reuse: use of wood from other construction (banks).
Relationship with the environment. The fragmented approach allows soften the impact of existing sports pavilion. The design of objects can create a landscape that intentionally framed their immediate natural environment: Profile of Alicante, sea, beach and wetlands. Reducing water consumption in green areas. Use of native vegetation with little irrigation needs.
