The building houses the functions of a health centre for the Iturrama’s neibourhood, an important residential area of high density, developed, that presents a lack of formal unity and order. As result of this, without a doubt, is the plot where the building is setted that situated between hight buildings, isolated and of diverse forms, seems to have been relegated to a “urba waste” value.
The tight occupation, the limited urban conditions and the need of carrying out the functional program, maybe too wide taking into account the previous considerations, forced us to plan the whole occupation in high and alignment defining necessarily an extremely compact volume of low high. This conditions the evolution of the whole proyect inspiring all the criteria, not only formals but of composition.
