Health Center Of Talavera for Arch Daily's Building of the Year 2011 contest
Arch Daily, the world's most visited architecture website, chose Health Center Of Talavera for its Building of the Year 2011 contest.
Arquitecnica Architects Roberto Moreno Klemming and Peru Cañada Omagogeascoa, built the new Health center of Talavera de la Reina, Toledo, in the middle of a single family neighbourhood. A semi public path diagonally cuts through the building,ending in an open courtyard with the large staircase and the main entrance at the end. The main quality of this Plaza, however will be to led people into the building complex and provide orientation for visitors.
The lobby is conceived as a spatial continuation of the courtyard. Inside, the building is planned as a single, open space that offers a transparent landscape in three floors. All levels have sky-lit waiting rooms galleries open to the Plaza in a special interplay between inside and outside.
