BOTANIC RESEARCH CENTER
Leon | Spain Research | Academic 300.000 sqm Private Commission Under development
The project is located in an old Washing Coal Plant in León, Spain. The proposal is to renovate the old structures to create a Research Botanic center. The Constructions are surrounded by harvest fields that would be use to the research center and integrated with the landscape.
For the new spaces the wraparound is a double translucent skin that allows more light into the space and also controls better the temperature. For the landscape project the use of gabion walls was a strategy to reuse the material of the souroundings.
