How can we design a project based on reusing local materials?
The work on the sports court shelter is based on reusing, redesigning and renovating an existing structure. This is a clear example of project design based on the savings obtained by a layout and building solution that is unthinkable from any other approach, which, in addition to fulfilling the commission’s purpose, is better integrated into the landscape, recovers and improves the existing material and reduces CO2 emissions, its energy consumption over its lifespan and the real execution budget.
