COMPETITION FOR THE RESTORATION AND REHABILITATION OF THE BERNAL HOUSE IN LA POBLA DE VALLBONA

SECOND PLACE

The open space, due to its configuration and design, becomes the articulating element of the proposal presented.
It is obvious that Pobla de Vallbona has a large public space, the Municipal Park, which combines green areas, a large esplanade with a stage and covered areas for markets and events with which it is difficult to compete. However, once the 'grandiose' part is removed, it is perceived as a not very intimate space, even rather noisy, both because of the traffic and because of the groups of people who live in the banks.
The dins el pati space is projected as an antagonistic space, a complementary socio-cultural space that seeks the INTIMACY of low-mass events.
This space is configured as a square opened by the carriage entrances located on the diagonal Avda. De Colón and Poeta Llorente Street. Inside, like a cloister, a square circulation is ordered, leaving an open central area protected by the planter benches that are completed with the stage slab.
A mobile scenario is ruled out due to its problems outdoors and surely its lack of economic performance. A minimally elevated floor is proposed that serves as a square, as a cafeteria terrace and as a stage since its height does not pose mobility problems or the need for protections such as railings.
