Public Park Facilities
Leiria, 2014

This service building is a part of a major requalification of a Public Park. The project started with the one material that is being used in all the existing structures to then try to use it in a new way. The wood log has the quality of mimicking the verticality of the trees contributing to the fluidity of the space. The same sensation was explored in the shape of the building - a continuous wall that spirals around and generates the spaces without really enclosing them. Inside and outside can only be defined as different moments of a continuous space.
