Designed by scob architecture and landscape; the project respects the wishes of the community and proposes a space with great flexibility.
The square is organized into areas of three different degrees of intensity: a large central space which enhances the entrance to the public building; some middle-grade zones, with soft materials such as grass and sand, that work as the transition space between the perimeter and the center of the square and finally, the areas closest to the streets, which have a greater degree of intimacy, where the resting areas are located.
The vegetation, materials, furniture and lighting choices have also been made according to these criteria.
