Speaking of Velez-Rubio is inevitable to refer to the great weight that the landscape has on this population. From Murcia-Granada highway, the town appears crouched on the slopes of Maimon, as a child protected by his mother at the immensity of this great territory of the Sierra de María, in permanent dialogue with the top counterpart La Muela. As a single note is worth noting that we speak of a land full of revelations, known as the discovery of Cave Shelter or signs, place located at the foothills of the Sierra de Maimon Grande, which houses paintings as “Indalo” anthropomorphic figure that has become the symbol par excellence of Almeria, in addition to “The Wizard” or “The Sorcerer”, among others, belonging to the Rock Art. The rock art Velez was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO within the Mediterranean Basin on the Iberian Peninsula, December 5, 1998.
In a place where the vastness of nature is so amazing, so full of nuances and contrasts, it was only necessary to look for the keys that determine the volume and clothing of the building. The extraction of concepts such as dirt and snow, shiny and opaque, light and shadow, silver and brown … were the ones who determined the use of steel as material to be used only with shades of surface treatment. The appearance of weathering steel rust of playing land and metallic appearance of the galvanized steel to realize the flashes of snow and sky. The patina acquired over time will make the contrast of these items be merging, mixing, stained, so that the skin of the building age in a natural way without thereby losing its identity.
A priori Health Center stands as an amorphous volume without specifically like a mountain peak. The building will be discovered by strolling or wanders around to reveal cracks, holes, shelters and caves carved into the piece of steel. To emphasize the castings or carvings on the volume, it resorts to the use of color, symbols or texts that identify the various points of access to the building as areas where the skin envelope is opened and uncovered announcing the user inside . Surrounding the building is a constant surprise, despite the recurrence of pixilated skin facade. We could say that the building’s exterior has infinite time and infinite faces changed by the incidence of the sun, lights and shadows of people and that it will, or to peacefully use the public space of the place that gives you access. Inside the cave the brightest and most privileged spaces are reserved for those waiting their turn appointment.
But this form of amorphous volume corresponds to a programmatic approach and functional organization more complex.
The design of the building as part of strict conditions limiting the floor area with a maximum deviation of 4%, according to application standards by type (useful floor area = area x coefficient of 1.53). Apart from a limitation on the surfaces of the stays, conditional form, position and relationship as a design guide for such centers in Spain.
So we decided to turn this mode of operation and create a flexible system that would give identity to this type of building. We start from the concept of the sum of the parts or areas with strict adherence to the program whose supplies are structured under the law of the sum according to their affinity, event sequences and searched, as the generator system of a living entity where it fits solidifies a compact amorphous form. We talk about the packaging of parts by a single package as a “splint”, which supports and protects the bones and soft tissue, reducing pain, swelling and muscle spasms. The result is an amorphous volume is stretched and stapled by a single package.
Comparison is assumed that dramatically, the splint is the tissue that contains a few programs usually very sectorized. From the outside it looks confusing, the openings required for ventilation of the rooms is diffused through the porous holes.
