Noguera and Fernández Ponce, Turó de la Peira sports center in Barcelona

 
Anna Noguera and José Javier Fernández Ponce carried out this project that involved building a new multisport center for Barcelona’s Turó de la Peira neighborhood and fitting out the interior of one of its city blocks. The facilities are housed in a volume set into the ground, negotiating the level difference between two streets. Its more urban facade, with a porch at the corner, faces the street Sant Iscle, while a plant-covered gallery engages in dialogue with the garden.

The sports ground is on the first floor, with natural light shining in through windows and skylights monitored by sensors to ensure correct cross ventilation. The swimming pool is half-buried into the slope of the site. An aerothermal system here provides hot water and air conditioning.

The construction is executed with prefabricated pieces of laminated timber, the predominant material inside. In addition, the compact volume incorporates a rainwater collector and photovoltaic panels that generate 90% of the energy the building needs.
